I think there should be some of them inside any big town. They have no reference, no highway authority classification, just a big street with a name. At least, this is a *very* common case in Spain.

<br>of London right up to Waterloo Place in Edinburgh. The route occasionally<br>changes from trunk to primary based on purely political reasons as to<br>whether local, regional or national government maintain it, and occasionally
