Driving Tips For Milton Keynes
The city has been designed from scratch, with the benefit of town planning and architects’ knowledge. The roads are organised in a grid system, numbered as H roads that run horizontally, and V roads that run vertically on a map. The intersections are all roundabouts, so traffic flows smoothly. However, visitors can get confused as the roads all look similar - take a map or use a GPS.
