Welcome to the UK's favourite roads website. (formerly CBRD) is dedicated to the study of the entire road network of mainland Britain. These days there's a lot of information about the road network out there - but remains the biggest, the most comprehensive and the most frequently updated.

I aim to make the information on the site accessible to everybody, both in the way it's written and the way it's presented. has no politics. It is not a pro-roads protest or campaign site. It is a reference site which aims to provide up-to-date and useful information on the road network of Great Britain.

I hope you enjoy the site!
