What areas would you like to see on the new Corrie set?

The precinct/tram stop set at Granada Studios.
After yesterday's news that the new Coronation Street set would be adding new areas onto the set, which areas would you like to see?

On the current set, there is the police station exterior, the Street set, and a precinct set, which you may not have noticed was a set. Small bit of trivia: the viaduct in the picture was the one used for the 1970s set and also for Davenport's garage in 2004.  And the final set, Weatherfield General Hospital's entrance.

On the new set, I think it would be great to finally introduce Tile Street, after the sheer amount of times it has been mentioned by Coronation Street residents. Also, if I'm not mistaken, Tile Street is also home to its own police station, so that could be introduced. Tile Street is meant to behind Victoria Street, according to old maps, and there is a back street for Victoria Street on the new set.

I would also like for the old Roy's Rolls / Rita's Kabin houses to return, there is apparently room to add things behind the bridge on Rosamund Street, so I'd put the back there. Anyway, enough of my ideas, tell us some of your own!

I always thought it was ridiculous that Streetcars and it's flat share a building with the salon and the salon flat. I don't know if it's ever been addressed in the show but when you see the outdoor set, it is in the same small building. I think it should be in it's own standalone building behind the salon on Victoria street. Or at least, the size of the building should be expanded so that the existence of two flats makes sense. It also never made sense, physically, how two one-bedroom flats could exist over the Kabin.

Maudsely Street! It shares the back ginnel with Coronation Street, and its residents would without a doubt drink in the Rovers as regularly as the current cast do. Considering how much popping into each others houses the Corrie regulars do, it strains credibility that they would not also be friendly with the maudsley Street crew - hey, they must put the bins out together, at least! I'd just love to see someone from Maudsley St nip through the back yard & knock on the back door to ask Fizz how baby Hope is doing, or somesuch situation.

I really hate the Precinct set - it's clearly been done on a budget of about fourteen pence, and I hate that the tram service isn't Metrolink. EastEnders has the Underground station - I'd like there to be a proper Coronation Street tram stop (perhaps on the viaduct behind Dev's shop).

The Precinct set isn't really a set, as such, it's just made up out of another part of the studio outside of the area where the current outdoor set is. It does feel very temporary with just a few shop signs thrown up.

I know it won't happen, but I'd love to see the viaduct behind the Rovers disappear as it shouldn't be there!
