    Default Derby council ponders Lara Croft street

    'Lara Croft Way' one of eight names up for voting

    Tomb Raider starlet, Lara Croft could have a road named after her... in Derby.

    Back in July, Derby city council asked for suggestions for two new roads being built in town. After receiving over a hundred suggestions the council's whittled the candidates down to eight, one of which is 'Lara Croft' Way.

    <!--[video]--> Original Tomb Raider developer, Core Design, was originally based in the city before closing in 2006. So there is actually a link between the two - it's not just a cruel joke on behalf of the residents.

    And the best thing about the whole affair is that the winning road names will be voted for by the internet, so unless it's up against Goatse Close, Lara Croft Way is almost definitely going to happen.

    <!--[bigpic]--> Cast your vote for Lara at derby.gov.uk.

    'Lara Croft Way' ?

    Its nice to hear that. Maybe this is the first time this is happening. I mean to set up a road name taking from a gaming character.

    Now its official...

    A new ring road in Derby is to be named after games heroine Lara Croft following a public vote.

    More than 27,000 people took part in the vote (including me) to name the Osmaston Road to Burton Road stretch, with 89 per cent opting for Lara Croft Way, reports the BBC.

    <!--[video]--> Councillor Lucy Care, cabinet member for planning and transportation, said: "The vote really captured the imagination of people from across the world and, despite my lack of gaming knowledge, I accept that a majority of 89% for Lara Croft is too overwhelming to ignore.

    "She was created in Derby and deserves to stand alongside some of the more traditional icons of the city.

    <!--[bigpic]--> "The vote for Mercian Way is also testimony to the passionate local support shown for the servicemen and women serving right now so I'm pleased that there will be a lasting legacy to honour them in what will be the biggest change to Derby's inner road network in 30 years."

    Tomb Raider was created by Core Design in the mid-1990s, which was based in Derby.
