Date published: 26 January 2021

You asked

F/O from 1195-2021 I’m just following up on this request as the shapefile that was shared below is missing a section of the red route along the A13 in East London. I noticed this when comparing to GIS data from the London Atmospheric Emissions Inventory. The map below shows the missing section highlighted in red (using LAEI data), with the TfL shapefile overlaid in blue on top: Would you be able to share another shapefile with the full network?

We answered
