You know how great it is when you stumble across a site that’s insanely obsessed by a subject you’d previously thought immune from geekery? And how they’re usually poorly designed with awkward fonts and distracting background images? The UK Roads Portal gets a tick in all boxes. But some of the sites it links to escape the awful design, particularly Chris’s British Road Directory. “CBRD” contains more than you’d ever need to know about the country’s roads, including a Windows-based motorway simulator. The level of glorious geekery can be summed up in the results of a poll titled “Which road is least deserving of its ‘M’?”
Surprise surprise - the A6144(M) is winner of the least deserving motorway award! The M67 and M271 are tied, while the A627(M) gets a reprieve, despite its halfway roundabout!
