File baseFond GLC, subfond TD/C


A report by the London County Council's Chief Engineer's Department on the scheme that provided a grade-separated junction on the A3 at Tibbet's Corner.

Among other things, we learn that it was designed in this way so that it matched interchanges being provided elsewhere on the A3 by the MOT (specifically the one at Hook), with two lanes each way through the underpass and three lanes each way elsewhere. We also learn that this junction was part of a wider scheme whereby the A3 was improved across Putney Common and several parallel roads (notably Portsmouth Road itself) were stopped up and returned to nature.

There are copious plans, elevations and more, all as-built.
