Are you planning to build yourself a motorway at some point soon? Yes, I thought so. Me too. I have the number of a bloke who does flyovers at trade prices if you're interested. Anyway, one thing you'll need if you're designing your own motorway is some junctions. But which to choose? There's so many out there!

Not to worry — the CBRD Interchanges guide is back from the dead. It's been offline for a while, but it was originally launched thirteen years ago this month, and it's now back online, vastly expanded and updated. It's also linked in to the Motorway Database, where you can now click through from junction pages to read more about the type of interchange you're looking at. I've even added two new layouts that weren't there at all before — Forks and LILOs.

Elsewhere you'll find some small modifications to the Motorway Database and Road Schemes. The Highways Agency became Highways England this month, so I have updated all 1,297 references to the Highways Agency in those areas to reflect their new name. Don't worry, I did an automatic search and replace.

It's been lovely catching up with you, but I do have this motorway to build, and I've got a four level stack interchange being delivered from B&Q, so I'd better be off.

Welcome to CBRD

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!
