|Route outline (key)|
One of Hertfordshire's plans to upgrade their Trunk Routes, the A41(M) was the Watford – Tring Motorway, planned as new-build from the M25 Spur at Hunton Bridge to just beyond the Hertfordshire boundary at Tring. The Tring bypass was built and opened as A41(M), but budget cuts hit the scheme and it was built as an All-purpose Road. At one point the Watford Bypass north/west of the M1 at Berrygrove was to be upgraded (online) to motorway as well.
The rest of the road was cancelled in November 1976, being described as "unnecessary".
In 1987 the road was despecialized after any further extensions had been deemed unfeasible due to the M25 bodge. The original A41 (now A4251) in Hemel Hempstead and Berkhamsted was bypassed with a similar scheme on the planned route of the A41(M) but with substandard junctions and no hard shoulder, opened in 1993. This road joins up to the former A41(M) on the eastern side of Tring, the junction layout unchanged.
