Junction of the M25 and M11 motorways at night, Essex, England (@ Jason Hawkes/Corbis)
- You\re looking at a section of the 117-mile motorway that loops around England\s capital city.""Shall we take a trip on the London Orbital?
- Does this look like a golden superhighway calling at all points in the future?""Oh no, this is the road to hell
- If you want a more typical experience here, try staring at the back of someone else\s car for many, many miles.""You could pass the time by gazing at our location on a map?
- Work began on this route in the early 1970s and the final section was completed on this day 1986.""Who declared it officially open?
