Construction begins at site of new Tesco Extra store

Have your say

Work has started on the multi-million pound project to build a Tesco Extra store on the former Civic site in Rotherham town centre.

The project, being delivered by developer TCN UK, will create up to 200 new jobs and provide major upgrades to the surrounding road network.

The supermarket will replace Tesco’s existing Forge Island store and is scheduled for completion in late 2014.

Alongside the construction of the store, the work includes the creation of a new road junction on Centenary Way, paving the way for the demolition of the Centenary Way flyover.
