Tesco Superstore, Rotherham

This major scheme in Rotherham involves redeveloping the former civic buildings site at Walker Place and the construction of a new store and petrol filling station for supermarket chain Tesco. The project includes the demolition of Norfolk House, the Library & Arts Centre, the Civic Centre and the existing Centenary Way flyover which is being replaced by a new road junction created between Drummond Street and Centenary Way.

Extensive road improvement works form a key part of this development, plus redevelopment of the landscaping of Effingham Square, which involves moving the Grade II listed Hastings Clock. The clock was given to Rotherham in 1912 by a local businessman to commemorate the coronation of King George V and Queen Mary. It initially stood in Effingham Square, was moved to Walker Place in the 1960s, and is now being returned to Effingham Square as part of the scheme.
