|Route outline (key)|
The A1009 is an urban A-road in northeast London.
The road starts on the eastbound onslip to the A406 from Cooks Ferry Roundabout, amongst the Walthamstow Reservoirs at South Chingford. It heads north before turning east at a roundabout, with the A1037 continuing northwards. After going through Chingford Hatch, where it goes under the Chingford Branch Line, it crosses the A104 at a staggered junction before running along Broadmead Road to end on the A113 within sight of the southern end of the M11.
In 1922 the A1009 only ran on its Woodford section, between the A11 (current A104) and the A113, albeit along Snakes Lane, to the north of its current route; the road was moved southwards in the 1940s. It was extended west to meet the A406 in 1935 along what was the A111.
