A118 Winston Way (Ilford) - Coppermine - 6691.jpg
A118 Winston Way (Ilford)

The only sign in the whole world to show Griggs Approach as an A-road! This is actually on u/c Riches Road running a very short distance parallel to the A118 (to the right). But, note that according to this sign, you can go anti-clockwise to get to the A118 westbound!!!

Southern end of Griggs Approach seen joining the A118 Winston Way eastern roundabout. The road crosses the GER railway and the old A118 High Road Ilford, pedestrianised beneath Griggs Approach.

A1083 Griggs Approach (Ilford)

The northern roundabout with unclassified Ley Street. Opened in 1985, it connects to the 'new' D2 A118 Winston Way, opened the same year. This road was incorrectly labelled as 'A108' on some maps, causing some confusion amongst the Sabristi. The bulk of the A1083 is Green Lane, leading east towards Becontree near Dagenham. But the western end just stops here with nowhere to go.

The next four pictures in this album relate to the A1083 Griggs Approach. Unfortunately, poor printing on an A to Z map led people to believe that this route carries the missing A108 designation. A call to the local authority confirmed that this is the A1083. However, in the meantime, these photos were taken whilst under the impression that it was the A108.

As the famed A108 (world's tiniest A road I reckon!) in Ilford isn't signed - we made our own!
