The A402 is a remarkably straight A-road in west London.

Until 2000, the A402 in its entirety was the Goldhawk Road which starts on the A315 (ex A4) and runs around Ravenscourt Park to Shepherds Bush Green.

However, since the parallel A40(M) Westway was downgraded to A40, it now carries along the old A40 route underneath the railway bridge which had an Inter City 125 on it for years (though it never carried any other train - it's actually a footbridge).

From Shepherd's Bush, it runs over the roundabout with the former M41 (now A3220) along Holland Park Avenue and through Notting Hill Gate. It then runs along the north side of Hyde Park until it meets the terminus of the A5 at Marble Arch. The A40 resumes its original route in Oxford Street to the east, or at least it would if anybody felt like signing it as such.
