A2202 Surrey Quays - Surrey Docks
This bridge, now bypassed, carried the A2202 over the entrance to Canada Dock

The A2202 led out towards the Surrey Docks from the new Surrey Quays development (which was never contemporary with the A2202) in south London.

The road started from a traffic-signalled junction with the A200 and went down Redriff Road. Redriff was the old name for Rotherhithe and we pass the modern Surrey Quays Shopping Centre on our left. On our right is Greenland Dock, which is now a yachting marina and the largest of the Surrey Commercial Docks still in existence. A new ecological park, Russia Dock Woodland has been created on the left.

The A2202 suddenly finished by crossing the entrance to Russia Dock - although later maps suggest it was extended a short distance to the entrance to Lady Dock - and became the B205, still Redriff Road but a short distance later became Salter Road which is named after Dr Salter, a local philanthropist. The B205 linked up with the equally short A2201 at the other end of the peninsula. Before the redevelopment of Surrey Quays the B205 followed Rotherhithe Street, which claims to be the longest street in London. Since the redevelopment and relocation of the B205, the A2201 and A2202 have become part of the B205.
