A route is by definition an abstraction. It is an idea dreamed up by a
committee somewhere, connecting various pieces of physical
infrastructure. It can then be communicated in various ways: with
physical signage, websites, pamphlets, maybe even legislation. However
it's communicated, interpretation is required to work out which roads
are "in" and which are "out".
