But you don't have a highway other than in the sense of it once being one of 
the main roads of the country, the country has since downgraded that road 
without downgrading the name - the A30 is another example, for some of its 
distance it's a fast good dual carriageway, but then it turns in to a 
backroad that no-one goes on.

I think it needs to be described as a city road to stop any future route 
planners from deciding it would be a perfectly reasonable route rather than 
the longer highway that goes round the city.
