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

    Motorway map of England, Scotland and Wales inspired by based on Harry Beck's map of the London Underground.

    Link: Motorway map of England, Scotland and Wales [PDF]

    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.
