A501 Old Marylebone Road

This is the junction where the two bottom ends of the A501 meet. Old Marylebone Road is two way, but Chappel Street coming in from the left accepts Eastbound traffic only.

The Longest Lane is the nearer one (on the other side of the crash barrier) . The Marylebone flyover can be seen in the background. Traffic from the A404, which has been running underneath the Westway, can join here, but there is no lane gain.

We've come a long way from the previous picture, on the M4 near Slough, but it's not really very far away! After the last picture the lane is uninterrupted along the A4, M4, M5, M42, M40, and A40. Contributions to help plug the gap are welcome!

The Longest lane is in the middle. Tiger tails where the Marylebone Flyover returns to ground level. We gain a lane on the left at this point, which stays with us to Kings Cross, although for much of its length it's buses only. The road ceases to be the A40 here, and becomes the A501.

The Longest lane is in the middle.

We're on a bus for most of the rest of the way now. The bus makes a detour here to Marylebone station, but the Longest Lane goes straight on!

The Longest lane is lane 2. Near Mme Tussauds. The right hand lane splits several times along here to allow right hand turns, and the left lane is a bus lane. the Longest Lane (in the middle) just keeps going!

The Longest lane is on the left. A rare shot! Usually buses stay at ground level to serve the bus stops here. University College Hospital can beseen ahead, built on the site of a building I used to work in.

The Longest lane is in the middle. Once again we gain a lane on the left as we exit the underpass. Ahead, it becomes a bus lane

81. Euston Station

The Longest lane is in the middle. Buses turn off into the bus station here, but all three lanes continue. The right hand lane finally ends at the next traffic lights, so when the bus re-joins there will be only two lanes.

One of the lodges from the original Euston station of the 1830s can be seen behind the bus in front.

The Longest lane is in the middle. Looking back the way we came, this is the parting of the ways. White Van Man is in the Longest Lane. The right hand lane, our companion since leaving the M5, leaves us here

The Longest lane is on the right. Now three lanes again. All three continue beyond the traffic lights into Pentonville Road. (Taken from a No 45 bus, in rather worse lighting conditions than most of the pictures on this stretch!}

The Longest lane is on the right. We enter Pentonville Road - the A501 continues straight ahead up the hill towards the Angel, but what do the markings in our lane say?

The Longest lane is on the right. The left two lanes continue as the A501 Pentonville Road, but ours turns right (across the contra flow bus lane) to become the start of the A201 - very out-of zone at this point

1970s proposal to transform the Angel into a roundabout with the A501 passing beneath
Angel Islington with Eastway Extension.png
Mid 1960s scheme to upgrade the Angel into a three level junction together with a link to the M11. This plan lasted only a couple of years before the route of the M11 extension shifted further south and was than abandoned altogether. The slip roads shown to the east of the roundabout would be on a double deck structure but are shown alongside each other on this map for clarity.
