Plan of Hackney - M11 Link Road: Interchange at Ruckholt Road: Scheme 'A', Temple Mills
|Location||Essex Record Office (see all files stored here)|
Along with the other files listed below, this item is a photocopy of a single plan sheet showing the layout of a section of one route proposal for the M11 Link Road, a trunk road scheme pursued in the late 1970s and early 1980s as a replacement for the cancelled M11 between Hackney and Woodford. The road was eventually built in further modified form as the A12 and opened in the 1990s.
In this plan the line matches the original M11 route, swinging northish over the marshalling yards, seemingly D2 in width. A D2 surface level road runs south along west side of tracks towards Temple Mills Road, with almost free-flow slips to link road eastward. West facing slips connect to Ruckholt Road which joins D2 to the south at a signalised junction. Link road then joins existing Eastway which has flat-level junction with Temple Mills Road almost immediately - this doesn't seem to have been a very ambitious scheme.
Two versions of the same junction are overlaid here. The original version is part of the plan; a second version has been overlaid by hand in marker pen. A handwritten note says "alternative alignment shown in green", which is presumably what colour the marker pen was before this photocopy was taken.
