|Route outline (key)|
The A108 is described in the 1922 Road Lists as New Cambridge Road (Proposed new road).
As such, the original use of the number was in north London, where you might expect it to be. However, as hinted at in the description, the road the number referred to did not actually exist when the number was allocated, although it appears to be under construction on the 1923 MoT map and is shown in full later in the decade.
The road started on the A105 in Wood Green and headed northeast along what is now the A1080 and then the A10 Great Cambridge Road. This bypassed Cheshunt before continuing into Turnford (now a slip road off the A10 and the southern end of the A1170), ending on the original line of the A10 (here numbered B176).
