The meeting point of the original and current routes of the A1008 by Wanstead tube station

The A1008 is a short link road in east London.

The original A1008 in 1923

The road originally started on the A11 (current A1199) before heading along the full length of Wanstead High Street. It ended on the A115 (quickly renumbered to A106, then A12).

The northern section of Blake Hall Road, originally part of the A114, was renumbered as a southern extension of the A1008 when the former was rerouted over the B162.

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.
