You should write at least 150 words.
|The map displays two locations for the construction of a supermarket in Garlsdon. As indicated in the map, the city has a population of 65,000. From an overall perspective, we find that the locations identified for the supermarket are in the countryside near Hindon and the town centre near to Bransdon and Cransdon.
From a closer inspection of the map, it is evident that the first site in the north-west, located near Hindon which has a population of 10,000 would be away from the industrial and housing areas. However, it is well-connected to these areas by road and rail. But we have to consider the fact that though it is in close proximity to Hindon, it is quite far away from Bransdon and Cransdon which are densely populated.
The second site is located at the heart of the city and is surrounded by industrial areas. It is 16km from Bransdon and 25 km from Cransdon. It is connected to Hindon and Cransdon by road and rail whereas people of Bransdon can only use the road.
