The illustrated map compares and contrasts two possible sites namely S1 and S2 planned for a supermarket to be built in the town of Garlsdon with a population of 65,000.
A glance at the diagram reveals that there are significant differences  with some obvious similarities between the two sites in terms of their location and accessibility.
[1st body paragraph about the location]
Looking at the information in more detail, S1 is in the countryside to the north west of Garlsdon. Although it is close to one of the residential area of the town, it remains more remote to the southern area. Contrastingly, S2 is between the housing area, which surrounds the town center.
[2nd body paragraph about the accessibility]
Because of the main roads from Hindon, Bransdon and Cransdon to Garlsdon town center, S2 is easily reachable. However, this is a no traffic zone, so it cannot accommodate any number of traffic. By contrast, S1 lies on the main road to Hindon, but it would be more difficult to reach from Bransdon and Cransdon. Interestingly, both supermarket sites are close to the railway that runs through Garlsdon from Hindon to Cransdon.
