Using the URL seems reasonable, since the URL is unique and the page title likely isn't unique.

Although technically correct (some autobahns?) it seems positively
dangerous to label as such. (no).

Do you know where are the Motorway Ends signs are located in you examples?

OS define the links as M*  classification, but Google shows them as A* & B*.



I interpret the the Magic Roundabout as separate lanes as there are
central reservations.
Which, I believe, is how you mapped it (?)

I notice in the relation for the MR, the wiki tag has the title of the
relevant page.
I've been using the URL. Is there a reason I shouldn't?
