The B243 (former A2039) Park Hill Road

The A2039 is a short-lived A-road to the east of Croydon town centre.

It started on the former A232 east of the junction with Cherry Orchard Road and headed south along Park Hill Road. It ended about half a mile further south on the A212 Coombe Road. During the Tramlink construction works in the late 1990s, during which the former A232 into Croydon became unclassified and was mostly closed to traffic other than public transport, the northern end was moved south to the eastern end of Fairfield Road.

The A212 has only existed here since the 1970s, which gives a terminus post quem for the dating of the A2039. However, the road has since ceased to exist. It has been renumbered as a northern extension of the B243 although it seems that the road was unclassified again in the interim.

It is still signed as A2039 at both ends. This signage dates from about the same time that the A232 was rerouted to run down Fairfield Road - the late 1990s. Previous to this the road wasn't signposted as a route at all. Ordnance Survey maps of the 80s and 90s erroneously showed the route as the A243.
