A little caution here. Although all the Sustrans National Cycle Network
numbering is being harmonised to the white number on red patch they still
make a distinction internally between "national" and "regional". One and two
digit numbers are being retained for the "national" infrastructure, which
basically is the very long primary routes. The shorter "regional" routes
(though they still have to be over certain length to qualify for a number)
are three digit. All the old white on blue patch regional routes are being
renumbered to three digit red patches as and when rangers get to them, if
Sustrans needs to reclaim a number, or if all the LA permanent signing needs
changing. So don't expect the process to be complete any time soon.
