A1205 Victoria Park - Limehouse

The A1205 is a largely residential - but surprisingly green - A-road in east London.

The road starts at a roundabout on the A106 to the north of Victoria Park in Hackney. The A106 here was numbered B115 in 1922, so it is not surprising that the original number of the A1205 here was B117. It was not upgraded to A-road status until the 1970s (although the B115 became the A106 in 1924).

The ex-B117 continues south across the park and crosses the Hertford Union Canal. It runs parallel to the Grand Union Canal with houses on the left and more parks to the right before reaching the A11 Mile End Road, which is crossed at traffic lights. To the left is Mile End tube station, whilst a tunnel on the right carries the park over the A11.

Approaching Docklands on the A1205

This junction marks the original northern end of the A1205. It continues south, still skirting Mile End Park to beyond a railway bridge under the LTS Line. The road finally has buildings on both sides for the first time since Hackney. This doesn't last long, however: the road crosses the Limehouse Cut to end at a signalised crossroads. Left and right are the A13 whilst the road ahead is the A1261.
