The Motorway Archive
The conception, planning, design and construction of a National infrastructure asset.

Work on developing the UK Motorway system, which transformed British travel, started in the mid-1950s. The Motorway Archive celebrates the engineering achievement involved in the conception, planning, design and construction of this transport network by many dedicated professionals. The Archive itself is a vast collection of information and artefacts relating to the development of the UK's motorway infrastructure. This website, which is hosted by the Institution of Highways and Transportation, provides access to the story of each motorway developed in Britain over the last 50 years and to the full archive collection, either directly or indirectly, for teaching and research purposes or for those who simply have an interest in the subject.      Follow the link for the MA website.

Note that whilst every effort has been made to check and ensure accuracy in the material published here, neither the Motorway Archive Trust nor the contributors can accept any responsibility for loss to users caused by inaccuracies in the information.
