A1400 Charlie Brown's - Gants Hill

Route

The A1400 is a short link road in the London Borough of Redbridge. It is D2 for its entire length.

A1400 at Clayhall

The road starts at Charlie Brown's Roundabout, amongst the tangle of slip roads that make up M11 J4. There is no access to the motorway but we do meet the A113 and westbound A406. After extricating itself from the junction the road heads east and passes between a housing estate and industrial estate. There is a set of traffic lights almost immediately but then the road is of reasonable quality, with a service road to access the houses on the left and the occasional LILO with side roads. Another set of lights is met opposite a school playing field.

The road continues in pretty much the same fashion, although after we pass the school the houses lining the A1400 are actually accessible from it. A roundabout is then reached and we bear slightly left. The road is now more-or-less an ordinary residential road, albeit D2 and primary. In both directions it has a cycle lane and wide pavements to provide off-street parking.

Another roundabout is soon reached and the road ends here, meeting the A12 and A123. Gants Hill tube station on the Central Line is accessible from here; this station is built in the style of the Moscow Metro.

History

This part of London was completely rural on classification in 1922 and as such had no road running across it. As part of the works for the A106 Eastern Avenue (the present A12) a spur was built to Woodford and the then-A11 (now A1199) and numbered A1081. After World War II the entire road was renumbered as an extension of the A406.

In the 1980s the North Circular was moved onto the Barking Relief Road (being watered-down plans for the M15) and the bypassed section was given its current number of the A1400.
