Road named after Lara Croft coming to Derby?

tomb raider.jpgStreets; there are just so many of them! And nearly all with such boring names! Bromley Street this, Commercial Way that; no wonder a member of Derby City council took a stand, letting the public name a new one from some rather kooky options.

Thanks to an online poll it looks like a new Derby ring road is to be named after Lara Croft.

Lara Croft has 95% of the vote with rival Merlin Way so far only nabbing 2%.

It’s not as random a choice as you may initially think however. Tomb Raider’s original developers were Core Design, who called Derby home.

If someone could please commission Pong Place now, I could die a happy man.
