Wellcome to EuroRoads database!
For more information about numbering and what euroroads are read Elbruz and Marcel's site. Elbruz is a great site, which I stumbled upon quite some time ago and it gave me the idea for this site. Their site is very good but is a little outdated and also has no dynamic capabilities. I already made the city-to-city route finder, but I can't put it up, since it overloads the server - I will try to write a couple of hacks for it when I have time..
Unknown lengths. As you may notice some segments have length of 10000 km - I don't have the maps for them, so if you can help me out - please drop me an email. The problematic ones are the extension of euro roads to asia (former USSR - Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, Kyrgizstan, Asian part of Russia, etc).
The system. I tried to be as exact as I could while making the database. I have converted the data for the start from UNECE documents and than mostly by hand went through it and fixed it. I plan on adding the native names for cities (as in Elbruz), I mostly copied distances from their site too, but I have added a couple of crossings and extend some roads a little thus it may be not exactly the same as in UNECE or Elbruz. I think UNECE specification of the roads was simplified and some routes did not have any connections, but it was clearly obvious that they should be connected to nearby roads. I plan to change the system so that the official UNECE notation is in bold, but it will take some time ofc.
Albania. You may notice that there are cities in Albania which are connected to euroroad network. Actually they aren't since Albania has not signed AGR (the network agreement), but I extended all roads which follow up to Albanian border to Tirane. E851 is not even supposed to go to Tirana (I think), but yet I decided that it should. Feels great to make decisions UN is making:) Joking. It's only for statistics:)
The distances. The segment length is counted as shown on map from city to city - this means, that if you actually drive along the route and don't visit the city you will save up lots and lots of km - Elbruz has the cummulative route length to show the true distance. I don't have it yet... No time:) And no good mapping software;)
Speaking of which if you like this site and want to do something nice for me - you're welcome - I could really use some good maps...
The database includes:
186465 kilometers (48 unknown segments) of which
~80000 km are on the reference roads in EU of which
~6000 km I have been on and I plan to go through the rest:)
