Roads & Motorways


A random selection of interesting facts about the roads and motorways of the world.

Longest Straight Road in Britain

Britain is better known for its winding roads than its dead straight ones so news that the longest straight road in the country is 15.1 miles long might come as a surprise. It’s a section of the A15 north of Lincoln that goes between Scawby and Scampton airfield.

M1 Traffic

The M1 was built to handle up to 14,000 vehicles a day. It now serves 10 times that number.

Most Haunted Motorway

The M6 is said to be the most haunted route, with sightings including Roman legionnaires.
