(former A2039) Park Hill Road
The A2039 is a short-lived A-road to the east of Croydon town centre.
It started on the A232 at the eastern end of Fairfield Road and headed south along Park Hill Road. It ended about half a mile further on on the A212 Coombe 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.
