Ringway 1: aerial photo-montage showing proposed route

At the GLDP inquiry, the London Borough of Lewisham wanted to show just how terrible the impact of Ringway 1 would be on the borough. It commissioned an aerial photography company to photograph the line of the road proposal, and then (on one long, thin montage of all the photographs) drew the line of the road from New Cross to Kidbrooke.
That is what is here - one long aerial photograph with a pair of red lines marking the route of Ringway 1, and a series of orange dots showing the line of Buchanan's proposal for a bored tunnel at Blackheath.
The line of Ringway 1 in this area is available from many other sources, so this file is of very little interest.
