A Roads

abbr. A Roads (A1, A2, etc)
A Roads are main routes. They can be divided highway and controlled access (motorway, freeway), divided highway but not controlled access (dual carriageway) or a two-lane two-way road. An "M" in brackets after the number, such as A1(M), indicates a stretch of A Road which is of motorway standard. As far as I know all A Roads are paved. There is no consistent standard for the numbering of A Roads. British A Roads are roughly equivalent to American US Highways and State Highways. See also "B Roads" and "M".
