Highway Authorities

Hi there!

I've noticed that you've created a number of junctions, for example Jane Murray Way Roundabout. However, I'm not convinced that it's Trunk, and hence isn't managed by Highways England, but the relevant top-tier local authority. Can you just double-check these please?

Rating template

Hello, Could I ask why you're removing rating templates from wiki pages? e.g. Portfield Roundabout Please could you put those back that you've removed. thanks C2r (talk) 18:54, 5 March 2019 (UTC)

Page Moves


We've got various custom templates and links within our wiki that can be disrupted by page moves. You've caught some of them but not others!

  • Specifically Buckbarn Crossroads has a gallery and images in the gallery linked to it.
    • Each of the images should be altered from the old gallery to the new one - just edit them and change the Gallery from "Buck Barn Junction" to "Buckbarn Crossroads". To see images linked to the old gallery, you can view the dynamically generated category by adding "pictures" onto the end, e.g. Category:Buck Barn Junction pictures
    • The old gallery should then be deleted (if present) and the new one added. The parent gallery should again be preserved, e.g. Junctions in the South East
    • If the page has a category for itself, e.g. Category:Buck Barn Junction it should be deleted and a new category created for Category:Buckbarn Crossroads. Typically this will just contain the text to hide it, but the original may also contain a parent category, which if present should be preserved.
  • The infobox template may include a name - this is because pages, such as "New Bridge (Dorchester)" would have their name in the Infobox omitting the bracketed entry. On Buckbarn Crossroads, the name in the Infobox presumably should also be changed from Buck Barn to Buckbarn

  • Other things to check*
  • The page may be linked to elsewhere - while a redirect may catch it, there may be double redirects, so always check the "What links here" and correct links, where possible.
  • The page may appear in a navbox at the bottom of the screen, which may need altering to direct to the new location

Please let me know if this doesn't make sense! Cheers C2r (talk) 13:54, 20 March 2019 (UTC)

C Road pages

Hi! You appear to be doing great work on C road pages around your local area. I just have two suggestions to make things even better:

First, it's perhaps more a style thing, but the 'from' and 'to' parameters in the routebox are not really for road numbers unless you have nothing else you can possibly say about the location - we have the 'meets' parameter for that. You can also use the 'gridref_from' and 'gridref_to' parameters which generate a link to mapping of the grid reference of the start and end points of the road, see my C road pages in Sunderland or Newcastle for examples. The grid references can be found by clicking on the location in Sabre maps or any number of other online grid reference finders.

The second thing is a housekeeping point. When you create a page with a dab box and the disambiguation page is a red link e.g. C4500 (Brighton and Hove), can you click on it and create the disambiguation page? This is easy to do - just copy and paste the code from C1000. Then, go to Template:C1000-C9999 and add the link to the page you've just created. In addition, all of your new pages will automatically be added to the category 'Roads numbered Cxxxx'; if this is also a red link, can you create this too? The only text you need to put in these categories is HIDDENCAT with two underscores before and after.

Reply here if any of this is unclear, and keep up the good work!
