Well, that's not what the guidelines say
so they obviously need more discussion

But I have actually seen on the very newest signs on State route 94, where the 
old signs have 94 in a blue shield, B94 in a rectangular box
This makes a total of 2 signs, and not where anyone is really going to notice
but there is evidence that we are getting A, B, C roads.

yes Pacific Highway will be trunk, but other Highways will be primary and a 
route like Summerland Way, on the 2004 Driver Reviver and Rest Area Map, has 
a blue shield, so its a secondary road.

What do all the mappers want to see with the NSW highway designations?
