Old Start of the A4 & A40 - Coppermine - 10582.jpg
Old Start of the A4 & A40

The A4 & A40 used to start in the City of London. Due to the IRA bombing campian in the late 1960's-early 90's, the roads around bank were declasfided and now are unnumbered.

Modern Start of the A40

Facing towards the other way from the old A40, we see the start of the modern road. It is a very different road to the one at the other end at Fishgrard in Wales. In the heart of the City, the A40 is very mush a city road. It is over 200 miles to Fishgrard and the A40 goes though Oxford Street, Northolt, many, many more places besides.

During the height of the IRA bombing campain, alot of the City of London roads were declasfifed. The A40 was one of those roads. Dubbed the ring of steel, it was meant to detrre the IRA. It heads towards Bank.

A40 Oxford Street

Here is anoter view of Oxford Street. In this more central view, you see it is a S2 road. With Centre Point in the background and the busyness, its Oxford Street alright. Oh Yes.

A40 - Oxford Street 1

Here we are on the world famous Oxford Street. All your favourite shops are here plus more! A part of the A40, this section of the A40 is Buses only. If Ken Livingstone gets his way, it would ban the bus and replace them with trams. A lot more greener shall we say. Very busy as well hence the car ban.

Looking south. The gap between the buildings contains the start of the A4. Three zones are visible in this picture. I'm standing in zone 5. The glass building (Sainsbury's HQ) is in zone 4 and the other building is in zone 3.

Holburn Viaduct A201 View

The A201 is the Northern most Zone 2 number. Deep in the heart of London, it goes under Holburn Viaduct. The Nearby Holburn Viaduct Station was relaced in the early 1990's by City Thameslink (Originaly named St. Pauls Thameslink). The Viaduct itself carries the A40. It is one of the few viaducts in the city of London itself.

Holborn Circus - Close Up - Coppermine - 2757.jpg
Holborn Circus - Close Up

This is a curious junction. It is a kind of roundabout, in that traffic has to pass the statue of Prince Albert in the middle as if it was a roundabout. Yet all approaches are signallised, and traffic turning right from Holborn into New Fetter Lane or St Andrews Street has to give way to oncoming traffic.

A1 A406 Proposed Junction Improvements - Coppermine - 160.jpg
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.
