Motorway Map Of England Scotland And Wales As Inspired by Harry Beck

I have found one error on this map: The M10 [North of King’s Langley, South of Hemel Hempstead and from the M1 (J7) to St Albans] is no longer the M10. It is now an A road (A414 I think)
Any other errors here?

Not sure about errors but I really like that! One thing which looks weird (but is right) is the way the bits of the A1(M) don't join up.
I think Beck was brilliant - it's such a simple idea to make a map like this but no-one before him though of it and even today not all major cities use maps like this for their transport systems.
