M11, A406

Woodford Interchange, junction 4 of the M11, is a massive, half-built, interchange in East London. Below it sits Charlie Brown's Roundabout.

the bridge taking the southbound M11 over the M12's unbuilt mainline

The junction, as-built, is an elevated directional-T between the M11 and A406. However, just north of there - in a linear park between the M11 carriageways (which would have just been slip roads if the junction was fully built) - would have been a junction with the M12 (which would have gone to somewhere in Essex, but where exactly changed several times) just north of here, intertwining with this junction.

What is now the mainline of the M11 through here (where the M12 was set to diverge) was going to have the carriageways further apart, but they were pushed together following local objections.

In addition to substantial modifications being made to Charlie Brown's, the construction of the junction and associated routes spelled the end for the junctions on the North Circular Road at Child's Corner and Gates Corner.

The interchange was additionally a simple fork, with M11 traffic heading either to a terminus at the Redbridge Roundabout or westbound towards the Waterworks. The newer flyovers for the north circular were added in the late 1980s/early 1990s with the opening of the South Woodford- Barking extension of the North Circular Road.
