You know sometimes you think to yourself "Why did I do that?"crowntown100 wrote:So, I've found a load of road work schedules for Cornwall Council roads, which includes plenty of 'C' and 'U' roads. So, I thought, I know what I can do. Ten minutes of hunting around the Council website for FOI requests on C and U road classifications in Cornwall. Let's see what they come back with!
May I introduce you all to the Cornwall Council Interactive Map. It's a great thing. I've managed to find many people's houses using it and has come in handy quite often.
If you go to Layers and select Transportation> Road Network (you have to open the sub menu and wait for it to load and allow you to select it) you are presented with every C and U road in Cornwall, as well as every footpath and cyclepath number (although I am yet to find a cyclepath number).
Interestingly, U-Roads come in groups of apparently random sizing, but all seem to be numbered in the format U6XXX. Areas around the north and east of Helston are all numbered U6026. Footpaths in the area will take the same last three digits of the road area, but have the F7XXX format. So, for the same area north of Helston, footpaths are numbered F7026. U-Road classification groups appear to increase from west to east. There does not appear to be a similar system for C-Roads. I'm not sure how I'm going to describe this on the Wiki, though. I'm also not sure whether it is feasible to create pages for every U-Road in Cornwall as nearly every road is classified and there are so many duplications due to the groupings. I expect that I will leave it, writing something that is appropriate like what I wrote above on the Cornwall Council page of the wiki.
Plenty of work to do now!
