|Route outline (key)|
The A405 originally ran from Gunnersbury Park to Wembley in West London. It was a rare case of a 3 digit road starting on a 4 digit road. This was due to the A4000 being A307 in draft lists.
As originally classified, the A405 bore right at Alperton to end on the A404 in Wembley. However, the road was soon rerouted to join that road further west in Sudbury Town, with the old road into Wembley becoming the A4089.
