||Surrey Quays - Surrey Docks
The A2202 led out towards the former Surrey Docks and the new Surrey Quays developments in south London. The A2202 started from a traffic signalled junction with the A200 and went down Redriff Road. Redriff was the old name for Rotherhithe and we pass the Surrey Quays Shopping Centre on our left. On our right is Greenland Dock and is now a yachting marina and the largest of the Surrey Commercial Docks still in existence. A new ecological park has been created on the left. The A2202 suddenly finished and became the B205, still Redriff Road but a short distance later became Salter Road which is named after Dr Salter, a local philanthropist. The B205 linked up with the equally short A2201 at the other end of the peninsula. Before the redevelopment of Surrey Quays the B205 followed Rotherhithe Street, which claims to be the longest street in London. Since the redevelopment and relocation of the B205, the A2201 and A2202 have become part of the B205.
