Ladies and Gentlemen we have a chance to make history. Derby City Council is naming two new stretches of the new inner ring road and is now allowing the public to vote on the final eight names. They are: John Flamsteed Way, Griffon Way, Merlin Way, Sorocold Way, Steve Bloomer Way, Eagle Way, Mercian Way and Lara Croft Way. Our buxom bosomed heroine has made the short list!
The name was suggested as Derby was the birthplace of the now defunct Core Design, creators of the orginal Tomb Raider. You can vote for your choice of road name here and I urge you to vote Lara. Tell you friends, tell your family and join the internet crusade to give pixellated bosoms their rightful place in history – between Osmaston Road and Burton Road and Burton Road to Stafford Street. VOTE LARA!
