  NationMaster - Encyclopedia: A1 road (Northern Ireland)
Astonishingly for a road of its strategic importance, the A1 is not yet fully dual carriageway and of the parts that are dual carriageway, most of the junctions are dangerous as they involve right turning movements across the busy central median.
A1, in the UIC classification for railway locomotive wheel arrangements, is equivalent to 0-2-2 in the Whyte notation.
A1 Ring is the name of a race track in Austria which formerly hosted a round of the Formula One championship.

A1.13 The Secretary of State for Scotland is the Road Authority for Trunk Roads; Local Authorities are local Roads Authorities for all public-non-trunk roads.
Road Authorities may make TROs to prohibit, restrict or regulate the use of a road by traffic or any class of traffic (including pedestrians).
For width-flow and contra-flow bus/cycle lanes, TRO’s are required to restrict entry to roads and to eliminate conflicting movements at cycle crossings and pedestrian/cycle crossings.

 2002 Press Releases
LONDON - Road Management Group (RMG), the joint venture which includes KBR (Kellogg Brown & Root), has been selected by the Highways Agency as the preferred bidder for the £260m project to upgrade to motorway standard, operate and maintain, a 33-mile stretch of the A1 road between Darrington and Dishforth in Yorkshire.
The DBFO contract for the Darrington to Dishforth section is part of a package of improvement measures for the A1 road and is planned for award towards the end of this year, with construction due to start in April 2003.
Road Management Services will raise the necessary finance for the project, design and construct the highway improvements and operate and maintain these and other sections of the A1 for 30 years.

 SABRE - Road Lists - The First 99 - A1
The road between this point and the "Boot and Shoe" junction is not of motorway standard, but only motorway-legal traffic can use it as there is no way for non-motorway traffic to join at this point: more to the point, there is no way that such traffic can leave the northbound carriageway.
Back on the original A1 for eight miles now, apart from the 1960s viaduct at Wentbridge whose "listed" status seems to have been a bar to further improvements on this stretch, although recent information suggests that this last gap in the continuous motorway from Blyth to Gateshead may itself be closed within the next decade.
This can be explained by the road having favoured the slightly higher (and therefore drier) ground to the west of the fens and the Vale of York, crossing the many rivers as they come off the Cheviots and Pennines to cross the eastern plains towards the North Sea.

The A1 (sometimes referred to as the Great North Road), is the longest numbered road in the UK at 409 miles (658 km) long.
Where the need arises to distinguish between the modern road and some former parts of the road, such as where it passed through a town or village that has subseuqently been bypassed, the name "A1" is always reserved for the modern section, while the Great North Road refers to its historical course.
Improvements to the road north of Newcastle upon Tyne are also being undertaken where the road consists mostly of single carriageway sections as opposed to a combination of dual carriageway and motorway to the south.

  A1 road   (Site not responding. Last check: )
The A1 is the longest numbered British road.
The original A1 route was designated by the Ministry of Transport in 1921, following the medieval Great North Road from Central London through Barnet, Potters Bar, Hatfield, Welwyn, Stevenage, Baldock, Biggleswade, Sandy, St Neots and Alconbury, then joining the route of a Roman road, Ermine Street, as far as Colsterworth.
Continuing north, the A1 runs on modern bypasses around Grantham, Newark-on-Trent, Retford, Bawtry, Doncaster, Scotch Corner, Chester-le-Street, past the Angel of the North sculpture in Gateshead, around Newcastle upon Tyne, Morpeth, Alnwick, Berwick-upon-Tweed, into Scotland, past Dunbar and Haddington before finally arriving in Edinburgh.

The A1, at 409 miles (658 km) long, is the longest numbered British road.
The A1 runs from the heart of the City of London at St. Pauls to the centre of Scotland's capital, Edinburgh.
The A1 is the closest thing Britain has to a cult road, and so some of its road signs achieved some sort of mythical status.

 The Motorway Archive. Trunk Road A1 in the North Riding of Yorkshire. Introduction
Since the classification of roads introduced in 1921 by the Ministry of Transport, trunk roads and motorways being added later, "the development of roads in the Riding has depended to a large extent on the grant situation at a given time".
The road and bridge works on that By-pass were carried out by direct labour by County council roadmen, and this represents the largest single project ever carried out by any Department of the County council.
Following the provision of a second carriageway throughout the length of the A1, apart from the major by-pass schemes to be described later, work commenced on a whole series of schemes to bring the original single carriageway of the A1 up to more modern standards.

 The Ultimate A38 road - American History Information Guide and Reference
The road reemerges from its junction with the M5 ten miles north of Exeter, and heads north via Wellington, Taunton, Bridgwater, Bristol, Gloucester, Tewkesbury, Worcester, Bromsgrove and Birmingham.
Between Worcester and Birmingham the A38 follows the course of a Roman road, although the construction of bypasses around some towns means the modern-day route deviates somewhat from the original dead-straight road.
It is a tidal flow road, in that more lanes are available travelling into the city during the morning rush hour, and more travelling out of the city during the evening rush hour.

 The numbering system
Note that the old road remains to the west of the A5 and is thus in the ``correct'' cone.
Roads in England are generally considered to begin from the London end, and roads in Scotland from the Edinburgh end.
I presume it merited a number because of being the road to the Scalpay ferry, and hence in local terms a ``trunk'' route, but could not in all honesty be classified as a B road.
