Route of the A66(M)

The A66(M) is a tiny little spur from the A1(M) to connect it to Darlington, which disappointingly ends on a single-carriageway road. It's quite odd that it was given its own number as it doesn't last much longer than a mile.

More interestingly this road is a link from the new A1 (or rather A1(M)) to the old A1: the road's original course is now the unclassified road to Barton. It would be nice to get rid of the mismatched capacity at the end of the spur by providing a dual-carriageway bypass for Darlington instead, tying neatly in to the existing A66 towards Middlesbrough. But that won't happen.
