Mercian Way opened to traffic at 1:30 pm on March 16th, 2011, and connected the new Stafford Street roundabout with the Burton Road roundabout and Lara Croft Way, which was opened in July, 2010.

In my 360 view I am standing in front of a commemorative plaque celebrating the opening of this new road. Here you can also see the combined pedestrian and cycle path.

Mercian Way officially opened on June 9th , 2011. Norman Baker, Under Secretary for the Department of Transport, unveiled the plaque among a crowd of Soldiers, members of the public, Mayor of Derby Councillor Les Allen and representatives from Derby City Council.

Mercian Way, which connects Burton Road roundabout with the Stafford Street roundabout, was the final piece of the £36.2 million Connecting Derby plan.
