urban motorways

"A distributor... situated within an urban area could be called an 'urban motorway'. There is no objection to this term as long as it is realised that the function of the road is to distribute traffic, and that 'urban motorways' do not, as many people seem to think, possess some magical property."
Traffic in Towns, Colin Buchanan, HMSO 1963.

The Manchester Modernist Society may disagree, Mr Buchanan.
