With a population of 65,000 people, Garlsdon
town
is drafting a plan to establish a new supermarket. Two potential sites are being considered, one at the heart of the
town
(referred as S2) and the other on the country side (referred as S1). Site S2 is placed in the vast industrial area of the
town
where the railway line passes through. The proposed S2 site is a
town
centre and no traffic zone. It is 16kms away from Brandson which has a population of 15,000 and 25kms from Cransdon with a population of 29,000 by a main road. Both these areas are southwest and southeast of Garlsdon
town
respectively.
This
location is very close to all the housing residents and industrial workers. Site S1 is in the countryside away from the hustle and bustle and is 12kms away from Hindon.
This
will be very close to people of Hindon which has a headcount of 10,000.
This
site if selected, will be located on the northwest side of Garlsdon
town
. Though both the sites have their own advantages, the pros of S2 out-weigh the pros of S1. S2 is easily accessible to more people as it is situated right in the heart of
town
.
Also
, there are 2 areas close-by where the majority of the citizens' lives and have access both by rail and road.
