Wasteoftime.jpg This file is a waste of time.
You are advised to avoid it like the plague. Its file title sounds rather interesting but it may contain only dull papers that fail to illuminate the subject matter or it may not even be related to the subject suggested by the title.


This file sounds rather like it might contain details of planned upgrade works to the A3 between the end of the Kingston Bypass and Tibbet's Corner - the missing link, in fact, between the 1960s expressway and the isolated 1960s junction improvement. There must have been a proposal to link the two with road of the same standard.

Unfortunately, this file won't tell you anything about that. It's more interested in whether there would be some grass verge between the road and footway where the road was widened slightly around Roehampton Lane traffic lights. Where it does mention Tibbet's Corner, it is concerning the existing junction improvement, which we know about because it exists.
