A108 Griggs Approach, Ilford
This article is about Griggs Approach in Ilford, shown on many A-Z Atlases as A108.
For the original A108, a road in London that ran between the A10 and A1170, see A108 (North London)
.
For the later A108, a road in the Newcastle upon Tyne area that later became part of the A19, see A108 (Seaham - Seaton Burn).

The A108 Griggs Approach was a mapping error in A-Z maps lasting until 2006. Its true number was always A1083, though it seems likely the map-makers couldn't get the whole number alongside this short stub of A road. In the early days of SABRE is was presumed to be the actual number, with lots of references to this short 3-digit A road during that period, owing to its oddity. This mistake even got published in the Daily Mail, when the society was asked to provide a list of short A roads.

Griggs Approach, which was built in 1985 and was connected to the classified road network only at its southern end, now seems to be unclassified.
