Map of two proposed sites for a shopping mall


Answer by Prasuma Karki

The given map displays two proposed sites, s1 and s2, decided by the city planners for the construction of new shopping mall in the city of Brandfield.

To begin with, the proposed site is going to be built in the northern part of the city. This site is encircled by a river, railway and road in its four directions along with a close proximity to housing area, however a little far from the city center, Golf Course and Park.

Turning to s2, it is proposed to be constructed in the south-east corner of the map with an easy access by road and rail networks. Unlike s1, it is much close to the Industrial State and much of the people living in the City Centre will be benefited by this site. Compared to s1, s2 lies farther from Golf and Park area.

Overall, the construction of s1 seems to be an easy option for the people residing in the housing area and city center whereas s2 seems to be a better choice for Industrial State’s people. Further, s2 is safer from the possible natural calamities like flood due to its remoteness to river.
