WESTWAY FLYOVER, A40, KENSINGTON AND CHELSEA, GREATER LONDON. Journalists at the opening of the Westway Flyover, lining the parapet of the roundabout at the junction with the West Cross Route, with their tour buses behind them.
Work on site for the Western Avenue Extension began on the 1st September 1966 and the Westway as it became known was officially opened on the 28th July 1970. The elevated highway connecting the A40 at White City to Marylebone Road in Paddington, at around 2 miles was the longest in Europe. The construction was organised into six sections. Sections 1, 4, 5 & 6 formed the main flyover into central London with Sections 2 & 3 being the West Cross Route running south from the junction in Section 1 near Latimer Road to Shepherds Bush. This photograph was taken at grid reference TQ
