    As well as the obvious improvements needed to the Birmingham/Worcester canal at this point, there will be huge benefits in the future if the Lapal branch can be fully opened up. The new proposals would shut down this option for ever – well, for as long as Sainsbury etc occupy the site. An extended waterfront site ought to be a real benefit to Sainsbury.
