To and from the North Circular
The A406 is a 27.5-mile stretch of carriageway forming the northern section of the ring road surrounding the UK's capital and considered by many to be one of the noisiest and environmentally damaging roads in Britain. The uncertainty of the road's development since the 1970s has caused urban decay and criticism for lack of progress. The road represents a significant artery carrying a regular life-flow of people and goods through, around and out of the city. An essential blight on neighbourhoods through which it passes, the A406 represents a significant issue for government and local communities. This project highlights the life surrounding the road and moments of natural beauty captured against the backdrop of the rubbish-strewn concrete edifice.
