Numbering System

The route numbering system is as follows:

  • Reference roads and intermediate roads, called Class-A roads, have numbers 1-129.
    • They are either odd-numbered, going north-south, ordered with E1 in the west.
    • Or they are even-numbered, going west-east, ordered with the lowest in the north. There are exceptions.
  • Branch, link and connecting roads, called Class-B roads, have three-digit numbers above 130.
  • Reference roads are roads numbered 5-95 ending with 0 or 5 or having odd numbers 101-129. They generally go across Europe and are usually several thousand kilometres long.
    • North-south reference roads have numbers 5-95 terminating in the figure 5, or odd 101-129, and increasing from west to east.
    • East-west reference roads have two-digit numbers terminating in the figure 0 and increasing from north to south.
  • Intermediate roads are roads numbered 1-99 that are not reference roads. They are usually considerably shorter than the reference roads. They have odd (north-south) or even (west-east) numbers between the numbers of the reference roads between which they are located.
  • Class-B roads have three-digit numbers, the first digit being that of the nearest reference road to the north, the second digit being that of the nearest reference road to the west, and the third digit being a serial number.
  • North-south Class-A roads located eastwards of road E 99 have three-digit odd numbers from 101 to 129. Other rules for Class-A roads above apply to these roads.
  • Class-B roads located eastwards of E 101 have 3-digit numbers beginning with 0, from 001 to 099.

Famous quotes containing the words system and/or numbering:

    In a universe that is all gradations of matter, from gross to fine to finer, so that we end up with everything we are composed of in a lattice, a grid, a mesh, a mist, where particles or movements so small we cannot observe them are held in a strict and accurate web, that is nevertheless nonexistent to the eyes we use for ordinary living—in this system of fine and finer, where then is the substance of a thought?
    Doris Lessing (b. 1919)

    The task he undertakes
    Is numbering sands and drinking oceans dry.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
