The Strategic Road Network (SRN) across Scotland, England & Wales is the most heavily used part of the national road network. Consisting of motorways and major A roads it connects major cities, towns, airports and ports enabling the movement of people, goods and services.
The Strategic Road Network in England accounts for a third of all traffic and two-thirds of all freight and is managed by National Highways. Information on how they manage this critical part of the country’s infrastructure, including a map of England’s SRN, is available on the National Highways website, accessible via the link here.
Scotland’s trunk road network is hugely diverse, ranging from the ten-lane M8 in the centre of Glasgow to single carriageway sections in the west Highlands. It carries 35% of all traffic and 60% of heavy goods vehicles.
