The Road to Somewhere - 2
Maid Marion Way is the subject of today's photo. It is one of the major throughfares around the city centre. It's also another product of the 60's planners. There was an ordinary road there before called Granby Street, but it was widened and became the road we see today. But by widening the road, it basically cut the castle off from the rest of the city centre. A roundabout stood where the blue bus is, but was filled in a couple of years ago, during the road's makeover, after various complaints about the road's unattractiveness.
