A1 A406 Proposed Junction Improvements

The A1 / A406 junction as seen on a 1995 A to Z London map was to be improved (by I believe) a flyover & side roads. Unfortunately, it was transferred to TfL and subsequently shelved.

Did well last month, so I thought I'd have another go! Flyovers at the roundabout with the A12 Eastern Avenue. Once upon a time 'J3' of the M11.

Modern A406. I wonder if the 3 arches in between the two roads, was the original route from horse drawn days.

Still an S3. From the banner, it would appear to be Coronation year, 1953. The garage site is now wasteland. It would be great if it could be rebuilt as a Motoring Museum, to complement the Ace Cafe.

As the sun sets, the bikes gather for the evening. It is a normal quiet cafe during the week, with better than average caff food. At weekends, it is packed with bikes, just like the old days. Wed. Sept 30 2009

Looking east from the A1199 (old A11) at the site of old Gates Corner, on approach to Charlie Brown's Roundabout (A113/A1400/M11) beyond the bend.

The building work on the left hand side is to replace the three Queen Mary College halls of residence towers with medium density residential.

Looking east towards the site of the old A11/A406 junction, Gates Corner. Since the A406 was widened during the M11 works, the A11 High Road Woodford Green no longer has access and in recent years the latter has been renumbered A1199 (a duplicate of a road in Islington).

Looking east from footpath on southern side of the North Circular. Approach signage for Charlie Brown's Roundabout and the bridge carrying the A1199 (old A11) High Road Woodford Green (no access between the two roads). This was the site of Gates Corner junction till the late 1970s.

Years ago, long before the M11 and the approach road arrived, the A406 used to run from Wadham Road to Forest Road parallel to Beacontree Avenue and the edge of Epping Forest. Here is the view looking NW from Forest Road (A503).
