Westway Flyover JLP01_10_00753

WESTWAY FLYOVER, A40, KENSINGTON AND CHELSEA, GREATER LONDON. An elevated view looking west at the junction between the Westway Flyover and the West Cross Route leading south.
Work on site for the Western Avenue Extension began on 1st September 1966, and the Westway as it became known was officially opened on 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. The West Cross Route was the first part of the London Motorway Box, part of the Ringway Project to encircle London with four concentric motorways. The Ringway Project was abandoned in 1975 with no further work on the West Cross Route. This photograph was taken at grid reference TQ
