motorway translated into other languages[edit]

Uh, a bunch of these are just motorway translated into other languages. --SPUI (T - C) 18:47, 17 July 2006 (UTC)

Second that, and as if that weren't enough, Autoroute is a disambiguation page and needs to be piped to an appropriate target on this page. Unfortunately, there really isn't a good Wikipedia target; the best one is probably Wiktionary:autoroute, not necessarily a good target for a link from a template. --Tkynerd 23:23, 11 July 2007 (UTC)

Channelization (roads)[edit]

I created the stub Channelization (roads) a while back; could this go here, or would it be better included in an article already linked? Mapsax (talk) 20:17, 11 March 2008 (UTC)

  • Not sure... I guess if it were to be included, the "Other" group seems the best fit...? Sardanaphalus (talk) 06:08, 12 March 2008 (UTC)
    • Sounds OK to me - "Interchange" is there, and channels are essentially mutated interchange ramps. Mapsax (talk) 20:48, 12 March 2008 (UTC)


I propose on deleting Template:Road types so we include more on topics on transportation, urban / city development...etc. Its a better way of organization. -- (talk) 18:20, 7 April 2009 (UTC)

Deletions are nominated and discussed at WP:TFD. Vegaswikian (talk) 20:15, 7 April 2009 (UTC)

"Route number"[edit]

Route number seems to be appropriate to add, but where? Mapsax (talk) 14:00, 15 December 2012 (UTC)

I'd say within the Other Terms line. - Floydian τ ¢ 19:54, 16 December 2012 (UTC)

Reorganized and expanded[edit]

I have cleaned up, reorganized, and expanded the template. The template's purpose is to provide an overview of all Wikipedia articles related to the subject, and to allow quick navigation among them. Another purpose is to make it easier to see all the road-related articles, so that they can be reorganized, coordinated, and improved. As you review the articles, you may notice that some of them partially overlap or appear to be redundant (for example, Lane and Traffic lanes). Part of the purpose of this template is to reveal these overlaps (and also gaps in coverage). Do not remove apparently-redundant articles from this template. Instead, tag the articles themselves for merge or deletion, as appropriate. Only after the changes are complete should you remove the now-obsolete articles from the template.

Road trains a hazard?[edit]

Um, please clarify why exactly a road train is listed as a "Hazard"? I would regard them as a type of vehicle, and, if you are going to include them you might as well include cars, buses, bycicles, pedestrians, trucks and trailers in the list too. The only hazard I can think of specific to road trains is the difficulty overtaking them. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 08:38, 6 April 2019 (UTC)
