M25 Motorway Opened - 30th Anniversary Thimble

£7.95
The M25 or London Orbital Motorway, is a 117-mile motorway that almost encircles Greater London. A narrower concept was first mooted in the 1960s as part of the plan to build four ring roads around London. A few sections, based on the abandoned London Ringways plan, were constructed in the early 1970s and it was completed in 1986.The Road was officially opened by then Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher on 29 October 1986, with a ceremony in the section between J22 and J23. Although technically not an entire orbital motorway, a short non-motorway stretch forms the Dartford Crossing, the M25 is Europe's second longest orbital road after the Berliner Ring, which is 122 miles
