|Route outline (key)|
The A1008 is a short link road in east London.
The original section of the A1008 was declassified on 21st December 1983. Later, in 1999, when the A12 was extended from Leytonstone to Eastway, this left the northern end of the rump A1008 hanging. The road was therefore extended via a TOTSO at traffic lights along the old A12 Cambridge Park to the east of the Blake Hall Road junction, to rejoin the A12 via long slip roads at an east-facing GSJ on the far side of the now-unclassified Wanstead High Street.
