Essay topics: The map below shows three proposed sites for a new hypermarket (A, B and C) in the city of Pellington.
The map represents three possible sites (A, B and C) in the city of Pellington for a new hypermarket.
A is located in North-West of Pellington, whereas site B and C are sited in a countryside. Site B is in North-East corner of the city of Pellington while, site C is located in the South centre of the city.
Looking in details, site A has a railway that passes through the surrounding areas (residential and industrial) and on the east of A has traffic zones. If it is built here, it will be next to residential and industrial areas, thus providing easy access by use of railway for those living on the estate.
Meanwhile, site B is located in countryside of Pellington but it has the motorway that connects between industrial areas and countryside. If the hypermarket is built here, it can expect to draw people from industrial complexes by use of motorways.
In contrast, site C can be accessed by people from industrial and residential since it is surrounded by all. Also, airport is nearby and the railway and motorway make easy to access to it. Therefore, by building a hypermarket in here would draw the most people.
