It's Valentine's Day, and I love you all — that is why I've updated the site to bring you some new things. And on a day when we celebrate love and togetherness, what could be more fitting than some new features on things we hate that keep us apart?

In Bad Junctions you'll find no love whatsoever for two new entries: M5-A30-A3015 Sowton Interchange near Exeter, which is as close to a complete dog's dinner as any junction listed there; and M1-A6-A50-A453 Kegworth Interchange near Nottingham, which is easily the longest, most strung-out collection of half-baked junctions anywhere in the UK. You are, of course, encouraged to show your affection for both of them by writing your own sweet nothings in the comments section.

I've also made some changes in the Motorway Database so that the exit lists can handle markerpost numbers not in kilometres, and you will now find that the odd markerposts on parts of the A1(M) and A194(M) that show distances in furlongs and chains have now been added in.

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!
