The M11 link road protest was an anti-road campaign in east London in the early 1990s. By 1994 the resources of the government began to win out over the protesters, and only one small street, Claremont Road, was yet to be evicted. The street was almost completely occupied by protestors; only one original resident living on the street defied the Department of Transport's order to move 92 year old Dolly Watson.
In November 1994 the eviction of Claremont Road took place, bringing to an end to the M11 link road resistance as a major physical protest. Several hundred police and bailiffs carried out the eviction over several days; the street was razed to the ground immediately afterwards.
