I'd have to disagree with you there.

The ring road was summarized as follows:

  • South end of the city, running east-west, is serviced by the 401/402, or using city streets, depending on the prof/expert/textbook, it was serviced by Exeter, Southdale and/or Commissioners.

  • East end of the city, running north-south, was what's now known as the veterans memorial parkway.

  • West end of the city, running north-south, was Wonderland.

  • North end of the city, running east-west, was not there.

The debate that went on (and still goes on) in London was about building the North end of the city's road, then using that to enhance the existing streets to build a true ring road. The framework is there but required a lot of cash and public opinion to fully implement.
