|Route outline (key)|
Both sections of A102(M) were intended to form parts of the eastern side of Ringway 1 in London, though in actuality they formed almost all that was ever built. Despite some maps showing the full route from Hackney Wick to Kidbrooke as motorway, including the river crossing itself, neither the tunnels themselves nor the northern approach road were ever part of the motorway. The two sections were linked by a section of primary A102, built to a similar standard but which has footpaths, bus stops and local road accesses along its length.
The Blackwall Tunnel Southern Approach headed south from the Blackwall Tunnels, along the Greenwich Peninsula, to Shooters Hill roundabout in Kidbrooke, where it meets the A2. It is now part of the A102.
