River avoidance?

Not sure why tho as rivers aren't that much of a thing in this game.

Between the river between the starting- and final-regions and the road connection between the interim- and final-regions, does the first path not take up fewer movement points than the second? I suspect it's actually faster, notwithstanding that it's also longer.
