Motorway Database

Home » Motorway Database

Welcome to the Motorway Database. Here you'll find information on every motorway in mainland Britain - its length and route, its history, construction dates, useful web links, and of course a detailed strip-map of the whole road.

You can go straight to a motorway using the drop-down menu, or find your way via a list or a map.

Construction Timeline data

Each motorway has a Construction Timeline showing the opening dates for each section of its route. This information is sourced from data collected by Peter Hewitt and Tony Priest for the Motorway Archive project.
