A4002 Link in Harlesden
The now-unclassified former A4002 Tubbs Road

In the 1922 Road Lists the A4002 was described as Tubbs Road but was later "widened" to become two one-way streets, Tubbs Road (westbound) and Nightingale Road (eastbound), that link the A4000 and the A404 just to the north of Willesden Junction station. The route was particularly useful for those heading North on the A4000 wishing to head East on the A404 or take a route to the North of it and wish to avoid the Harlesden one-way gyratory system. In spite of this, it is difficult to see why these roads were classified as A-roads (or even classified at all) and probably explains why the roads have since been declassified.

The ex-A4002 can no longer be used a through route for wide vehicles as there is a width restriction preventing access to and from the A4000 (although there is a gate that can be opened by emergency vehicles). For wider vehicles accessing the road (as well as local residents wishing to get into Nightingale Road) you can turn right into Nightingale Road from Tubbs Road.
