Tesco Express opens at Roe Lee

My daily journey takes me past the new Tesco Express convenience store at Roe Lee. During the six weeks from mid-September until they opened the store at the beginning of November, the place was a constant hive of activity. Multiple teams of workers were busy transforming the old unit into a modern grocery store. There are five parking spaces including one for disabled users, a cash machine and a disabled ramp. With limited parking it may not always be convenient for motorists but there are plenty of houses within walking distance. There is no cycle stand. The rails of the disabled ramp look like the only structure to secure a bike to.
