The London Ringways were a series of four ring roads planned in the s to circle London at various distances from the city centre. They were part of a comprehensive scheme developed by the Greater London Council (GLC) to alleviate traffic congestion on the city's road system by providing high speed motorway-standard roads within the capital linking a series of radial roads taking traffic.

The United Kingdom has a network of roads, of varied quality and capacity, totalling about , miles (, km).Road distances are shown in miles or yards and UK speed limits are indicated in miles per hour (mph) or by the use of the national speed limit (NSL) symbol. Some vehicle categories have various lower maximum limits enforced by speed limiters. A similar plan was revisited in the s under the name of the London Ringways. Predecessors.

Sir Charles Bressey, Highway Development Plan, Bressey understood the need for the South Orbital but he had trouble working out where it might go.

The idea of an orbital road around London was first proposed early in the 20th century and was re-examined a number of times during the first half of the 20th century in plans such as Sir Edwin Lutyens and Sir Charles Bressey's The Highway Development Survey, and Sir Patrick Abercrombie's County of London Plan, and Greater London Plan, Abercrombie's plan proposed a.

In Sir Charles Bressey was appointed by Hore-Belisha, Minister of Transport, to make a comprehensive and systematic survey of the roads of Greater London. It was clear that the infrastructure required radical improvement to keep up with the expansion of traffic and Belisha said that Bressey’s report “would stir the imagination of the whole country”.

Disparate evidence indicates that the provision of extra road capacity results in a greater volume of traffic.

The amount of extra traffic must be heavily dependent on the context, size and location of road schemes, but an appropriate average value is given by an elasticity of traffic volume with respect to travel time of about − in the short term, and up to − in the long term.

The Westway is a mile (4 km) elevated dual carriageway section of the A40 trunk road in West London running from Paddington in the east to North Kensington in the west.
