|Route outline (key)|
The A115 was perhaps the shortest of the A110 family extant in the early 2000s. It ran from Hackney Wick to Stratford in East London. It left the A106 near to Hackney Wick Interchange with the A12, running southeast as Chapman Road under the North London railway, before heading more due east as Rothbury Road and White Post Road, across bridges across the River Lea and its Navigation. Past the various River Lees, the A115 followed a southeast course along Chapman Road, briefly running very close to the south of the North London line, and then under the GER mainline before meeting the dual Stratford High Street (ex-A11, now A118) at traffic lights.
The A115 was was declassified in 2010, due to construction work for the 2012 Olympic Games. It was physically impossible to follow the former A115 (from end to end) until around 2014, when the Olympic site was being converted into an urban park. Since reopening as an unclassified road, the course of the Carpenters Road around the Aquatics Centre now runs more parallel to the railway lines.
The route was originally allocated the number B113, and was seemingly upgraded before 1932.
