City of London View looking northeasterly towards the Highway 4/401 cloverleaf interchange.  The Highway 4/401 cloverleaf was a textbook example of a cloverleaf until very recently when the westbound to northbound off-ramp was realigned to meet Glanworth Road instead of meeting directly with Highway 4.

City of London View looking easterly towards the Wellington Road and Highbury Avenue interchanges along Highway 401 in London.  The 401 passes a considerable distance south of most of the City of London.  It is only between Wellington Road and Highbury Avenue that development has surrounded the Highway 401 corridor.
