I SEE that some of your readers have given their economic reasons for wanting (or not wanting) Sainsbury's to come to Ely, but there are other issues, which have been missed.

Sainsbury's expensive information brochure clearly shows the High Street as being on the route of their shuttle bus service - but it is going the wrong way. Of course, it is easy to change the direction of an arrow, but the High Street is currently closed to traffic on a Saturday.

The plan also appears to show a pedestrian path cutting diagonally across the former Standen's site. I thought another supermarket had been interested in this area? Would any new company want a footway across their premises?

Do Sainsbury's know something that we don't know? Or have their researchers dropped some clangers?
