Just a small update this month, as there's a lot going on behind the scenes at the moment. But don't worry — what's new this month is something that is arriving by very popular demand indeed. I've also added corrections and minor updates to several existing articles.

Last month, we travelled to Norwich as the A11 arrived in the Motorway Database. This month we're staying there to ponder the bizarre layout of the newly reconstructed Postwick Junction to the east of the city. It's the point where the new Norwich Northern Distributor Road will terminate when it's built, and in anticipation Postwick has been rearranged to prepare for it. Unfortunately, the changes that have been made have failed to please many drivers, as evidenced by my e-mail inbox. Approximately half the population of Norwich have now written to me demanding that this brand new interchange goes into Bad Junctions.

I am not a man to deny the public its voice, of course, and so this month A47-A1042 makes its debut. Please feel free to leave a comment.

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!
