Philip: << Hi there ladies and gentleman >>
<< Has anyone mentioned before these duplicated roads >>
All the ones we know about areon Paul (A38)'s UK Roads site at http://www.angelfire.com/80s/pmberry0/ukroads/mistakes.html
<< A594 - This can be found between Cockermouth and Maryport in Cumbria. The second is the Leicester Inner Ring Road.>>
This has been mentioned a few times! I think Chris Bertram spotted it first.
<< A6177 - The Bradford Rind Road and also the recently renumbered road from Blackburn to Rawtenstall in Lancashire. >>
New to me! What was the number before? No, let me guess... A677 and they just shoved a "1" in it, right? Pathetic. The Highways Department in Blackburn should all be frogmarched down to SE1 to look at the register...
<< With regards to the A594 in Leicester I thought perhaps it might have been intended as a use for the apparantly vacant A564 number. >><A target=_top name=a564> Roads by 10 has the following. "This is..." at the beginning should presumably read "this used to be..."
A564: A38 (nr Willington) - A6 (nr Aston-upon-Trent)
This is the Derby Southern Bypass, a motorway-standard primary road running between the A38 and the A6. It has recently been renumbered as part of the A50, and as a consequence the number is no more.
[/url] So does anyone know whether this road or the Leicester Inner Ring is older? There's certainly some logic in what Philip says since the A563number was usedfor the Leicester Outer Ring.
