The point is that if we want to be the UK's key reference on road numbering, we have to expect that someone might ask a question about any road number, including incorrect ones. If Google were to mislabel a road as M21, we should have a page about it, so that anybody who thinks to themselves "M21 sounds a bit weird, I wonder whether it's correct?" can look at the SABRE wiki and read our page that would say no, it's not.
That's one of the reasons why I added famous fantasy schemes, like the East Coast Motorway
. Ditto the fairly solid hearsay about the plan for M27 spur numbering meaning that there's M270
(that's just a redirect to the Townhill Link Motorway
page, IIRC) and M274
pages. These things come up quite a bit on SABRE, and elsewhere, so we want pages on these.A36(M)
is on the wiki as it was in the digest, IIRC. It can surely stay as a page linking to PM.
Things like the A11(M)
provisional numbers, and the M30
M3 renumbering plan get included as on official documents - just like the ones already on PM.
Exactly. If it's a massively obvious error, such as on OS maps, Google Maps or some other commercial map maker, (or indeed an official or semi-official source) then that's in there.
Hence I've added the A65(M)
now I got my scanner working (the scan I did yesterday didn't work well, and I couldn't be bothered to re-do it - it's wasn't done to annoy you Lenzar, or because I didn't think it was notable enough before Steven's post) and could provide a scan of the offending map.
