UK Motorways, as of 2006/11/12

As part of WikiProject United Kingdom, we are aiming to map out all the UK motorways!

Motorways

Progress Summary

  • 11:39, 18 Dec 2005 (GMT) - 62% of motorways have both carriageways mapped. That's 1,964km out of a total of 3,135km (excluding Northern Ireland).
  • 20:07, 22 Dec 2005 (GMT) - 77% of motorways now have both carriageways mapped. 2,436km out of 3135km, only 700km to do!
  • 09:09, 30 Dec 2005 (GMT) - 88% of motorways now have both carriageways mapped. 2,774km out of 3135km. Just 360km to do - M50, M90, and parts of the M4 and M5 are the main routes not yet completed.
  • 13:43, 1 Jan 2006 (GMT) - 96% of motorways now have both carriageways mapped. 3,009km out of 3135km, and a mere 126km left to do. If anyone feels like helping with the final push to finish what's left, the outstanding roads are the M50 (linking the M5 at Tewkesbury to Ross-on-Wye), the M90 (linking the Forth Road Bridge and Perth in Scotland), and the M77 (linking Glasgow and Kilmarnock). There are also small bits to finish off on the M48, M32 and M96.
  • 10:27, 7 Jan 2006 (GMT) - 100% Complete. But...lots of junctions, intersections and spurs still need to be added. Also plenty of opportunity for checking, refinement and peer review.
  • 04:33 21 Aug 2006 (GMT) - Many of the motorways are not tagged, have missing junctions, or do not have ways defined.
  • 23:11 07 Nov 2006 (GMT) - Need westbound carriageway of M56 between J2 and J3 gps track & M60 between J6 and J8 with its 4 parallel carriageways.
