Britain's Motorways (Amberley)

1 In Stock

Motorways are found all over Britain, from Perth in Scotland to Exeter in Devon. In fact, there are now over 2,000 miles of motorway in England, Wales and Scotland. They are used by millions of us every day, yet how often do we ever think about these marvels of civil engineering that help to speed people and goods around Britain? In a first, transport historian Mark Chatterton has brought together information about the history, construction, routes and workings of every motorway that is found in Britain in one book.

Britain’s Motorways looks at each of the main motorways, including the M1, M6 and the M25 plus the other A-designated motorways, such as the A1(M), giving details of their history, routes and characteristics in a subject that has never been covered in such detail before. In researching this book, Mark Chatterton has spent many years travelling the length and breadth of Great Britain, visiting each motorway and capturing photographs.

The book is divided into chapters, each covering a different subject:

  • Common Features of Motorways
  • M-designated Motorways
  • A Roads that are Designated Motorways
  • Former Motorways
  • Other Motorways

Each chapter contains entries for each road, with a description and brief history included for each. 96 pages.
