Hello there!

If you've never been here before, then welcome to the site. CBRD (Chris's British Road Directory) is dedicated to the study of the entire road network of mainland Britain. These days there's a lot of sites on this subject - but CBRD remains the biggest, the most comprehensive and the most frequently updated. It contains information on most aspects of the network and is frequented by enthusiasts, officials, engineers and everyday road users alike. 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.

CBRD 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. To find out more about what CBRD is, where it comes from, and what it's trying to do, take a look at the About CBRD section.

I hope you enjoy the site!
