Neasden: A406 North Circular Road
Neasden: A406 North Circular Road
The North Circular Road began life in the 1920s as development spread out through north-west London and it has always been the A406. However in the 1960s the Greater London Council proposed plans to construct a series of high-speed circular and radial motorways throughout London to ease traffic congestion. Under these plans the North Circular Road was designated to become the northern section of a circular route known as Ringway 2, being the second inner of the four proposed Ringways. It was planned that it would eventually be upgraded to a motorway, provisionally designated as the M15. These plans were cancelled in 1973.

In this view the 40mph speed restriction is enforced with cameras, while the new landmark of the four wind turbines at the Great Central Way exit is visible in the distance. Beacon House is to the right.

Another observation - of the 19 cars visible in this photo, 14 are silver, 4 are black, and the only one that appears to be different is the one in the foreground that appears to be a dark purple colour, a sign of changing preferences by the car-buying public.
