A202 New Cross Gate - Victoria

Route

The A202 takes traffic from south-east to west London, avoiding the centre, and as a consequence is usually very busy. It's primary and a 'Red Route' all the way, and part of it forms a section of London's inner ring road.

New Cross Gate - Victoria

Arriving at the junction just to the west of New Cross Gate station, traffic coming along the A2 is given the choice of staying on the A2 for Surrey Quays and Central London, or taking the A202 for Brixton and Peckham. The A202 also happens to be the most direct route from here to a substantial swathe of the West End, since it carries more or less straight on from the A2. The road progresses through Peckham, close to the shopping centre.

Tim Lidbetter writes:
For many years you had to go round three sides of a square to negotiate Peckham westbound, but now the A202 goes straight through. Peckham's library (passed on the right) is an interesting piece of modern architecture.

On towards Camberwell and past Southwark Town Hall, it then runs dead straight along Camberwell New Road to the junction with the A3 and A23 near the Oval underground station in Kennington.

Vauxhall Bridge Road

The road would continue dead straight on from here were it not for the presence of the Oval cricket ground. The A202 snakes round the south side while an unclassified road runs round the north. At the subsequent one-way system we're joined by the A3204 Kennington Lane, which is where the A202 becomes part of the ring road. We cross the A3036 Albert Embankment by an elaborate-looking building that is now well known to be the headquarters of MI6. Then we head over Vauxhall Bridge and cross the embankment on the other side of the river, Millbank (A3212). The final section, Vauxhall Bridge Road, takes us into Victoria's one-way system where the ring road assumes the number A302.
