An Arterial Road is an old-fashioned term for a major route, often as a radial route or bypass. The term was used extensively in the 1920s and 1930s, including on mapping, to the extent that roads actually used the term in their name, such as the A20 Sidcup Arterial Road in Kent (opened 1923), or Blackburn's B6447 Griffin Arterial Road (opened 1938).
Today, the term is rarely used.
