Oh my, can it be true? After two years and two months away, CBRD has returned! Hello again. I've missed you all.
CBRD returns slightly slimmer and more focussed — you'll see that the navigation bar is shorter than it used to be as parts of the site have been taken down. In many cases they were less-used and less-updated than other areas, and in some cases, I was just no longer interested in keeping them up to date. But the world moves on and so do we.
You'll find long-form writing that previously inhabited Histories, In Depth and People now all rolled into a new section called Articles, which is cunningly laid out to allow you to filter the list and find things more easily. Futures has lost its non-obvious title and morphed into Road Schemes.
And next week... well, perhaps something new!

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!
