Errington Way

Description

Errington's student digs by night

One of the post-reunification projects spearheaded by Mayor Angus McFergus, Errington Way was popular with students who enjoyed the frisson of living in edgy nor'east Pegton, yet with excellent access to key facilities such as the Pegton College Beverage Research Laboratory, and, of course, the world-famous McPegton's fast-food outlet.

History

The slums of Errington were once typical of the area, fostering crime and festering in grime for centuries. Post-91, Mayor McFergus declared his intention to inspire a renaissance in the neglected northeast of Pegton, by inviting private developers to rebuild such areas, while preserving historical landmarks where possible (another prime example is Somerville Blvd to the southwest).

Residential and commercial purposes were successfully combined in the Errington Project, most notably by McPegton's - a local response to the proliferation of bland, uniform fast-food outlets such as what was to become McZed's, post-Outbreak. McPegton's used local ingredients - beef from Harden Park, greens from Weatherhead Park and the 'secret ingredient' - genetically-modified brains from Pegton College's Genetic Research Laboratory.

Since the outbreak, McPegton's has been accused of being a possible source of the zombie plague, as several batches of cheap contaminated brains from The Rowcliffe are thought to have been included in McPegton's products over 2004-5. McPegton's has now closed for business and the owners have fled to Uruguay to avoid extradition on the charge of "willfully causing a zombie apocalypse through neglectful food-handling practices".

In their defence, McPegton's have used the example of William Grove, who was a daily consumer of their brainburgers for years without ever suffering any sign of zombosis, although they admit he was morbidly obese as a result.
