Britain's 246,000 miles of motorways are used for the majority of long-distance journeys by both commercial and private vehicles. Our motorways join many inter-urban primary destinations and large cities in England, Scotland and Wales.

A Road Motorways
Some A-Roads have been upgraded and improved so that they have become the same standard as motorways. These sections of road have kept their number, but have now been suffixed with the letter (M), for example the A1(M), the A64(M) and the A635(M). In some cases this designation has been used by the Highways Agency to indicate motorway bypasses of an existing road.
