Overhead Sign Gantry over the A102 near Charlton
The signs on the gantry give advance warning of height and width restrictions applying to the Blackwall Tunnel ahead. These signs are blue rather than green because motorway restrictions apply on the road as it passes through the Blackwall Tunnel.

The Emirates Air Line (Thames Cable Car LinkExternal link (Archive LinkExternal link ) - Transport for London) can be seen above the gantry.
The A102 :: TQ3880
The A102 starts in Clapton in the north London Borough of Hackney and ends at the Sun-in-the-Sands interchange in Kidbrooke in the south Royal Borough of Greenwich, where it continues as the A2 towards the south coast.

The A102 was formerly a continuous route including two motorway sections classified as the A102(M) however, subsequent to the renumbering of part of the route in 1999, the A102 designation belongs only to the section including the Blackwall Tunnel linking the A12 and the A2 and also to the section from Clapton to Hackney Wick.

The A102(M) section of the road lost its motorway status following the formation of the Greater London Authority (GLA) and the subsequent transfer of all trunk roads except M1, M4 and M11 to Transport for London (LinkExternal link SABRE Wiki).
