    Reference answer


    The first potential location (S1) is outside the town itself, and is sited just off the main road to the town of Hindon, lying 12 kms to the north-west. This site is in the countryside and so would be able to accommodate a lot of car parking. [Crack IELTS with Rob] This would make it accessible to shoppers from both Hindon and Garlsdon who could travel by car. As it is also close to the railway line which linking the two towns to Cransdon (25 km to the south-east), a potentially large number of shoppers would also be able to travel by train.


    In contrast, the suggested location, S2, is right in the town centre, which would be good for local residents. Theoretically the store could be accessed by road or rail from the surrounding towns, including Bransdon, but as the central area is a no-traffic zone, cars would be unable to park and access would be difficult.

    [Crack IELTS with Rob]


    Overall, neither site is appropriate for all the towns, but for customers in Cransdon, Hindon and Garlsdon, the out-of-town site (S1) would probably offer more advantages.
