[ August 2nd 2009 ]

Derby City Council recently canvassed the public on possible names for a new road under construction as part of the Connecting Derby scheme, and were not altogether surprised at some of the submissions. According to This Is Derbyshire, Lara Croft and Florence Nightingale were both pitted as possible suitors by members of the public.

John Forkin, director of Marketing Derby, said he was in favour of something modern. "If you think about roads we have, like Sir Frank Whittle Road and St Alkmunds Way, roads can say something about where the city has come from and what it is proud of being associated with," he said.

"We have waited a long time for this road and we need to give it a name and the right name. Personally I would be in favour of something that projects something new and modern about the city so I quite like the Lara Croft idea."

The link to Lara Croft in Derby is through Core Design, original architects of Tomb Raider who were based in Pride Park, Derby. E-mail your own suggestions for a road name to samantha.whitworth@derby.gov.uk before August 28.
