Building Roads on a Newly Discovered Island

APHUG-RKA2LD

Unfortunately, these people living in tribal settlements have little interaction with each other because they have never had access to the sophisticated machinery needed to build roads on their mountainous terrain. Luckily you have the materials they need, but can only build one road.

Based on the distribution of population across the new island (see image above), where would you build the new road?
