It's not a road, it's the line of the Water Main which runs through this area, and can be seen clearly if you look at modern satellite images of Alperton and on in to North Ealing. It can't be built on. The current redevelopment plan for this site is going to make a park along the line of the Main with blocks of flats either side.

I don't understand this at all. It appears to be a cutting to take a road underneath the factory. The canal is to the rear of the factories in this picture, so it cannot be a through road. The main factory entrance is from Beresford Avenue. If the cutting is continued away from the factory it meets the end of Wycombe Road, and then out to the North Circular. But why bother?

I see the cutting continues towards the Brent. The purpose of the cutting still eludes me.

I have the answer. There is a water board pipe along this line. If you continue along its route upwards into the abbey estate you will see a path between the houses on which no house could be built. The gap still exists today and continues right through Alperton Lane and manor Farm Road.
