On what basis is 'highway_authority_ref' being put forward since I don't 
think the councils who allocate the references for C and U roads are 
actually the 'highway_authority' but are responsible for those roads NOT 
designated as the responsibility of the 'highway_authority' ... at least 
that is my reading of the situation. These references are 
'local_authority_ref' and are not unique from one part of the country to 
another while 'highway_authority_ref' suggests a more central management?
