What is a spine road?


New Ash Green in Kent, UK

Tobiwan has this to say: “New Ash Green is a large village built in the 60s and 70s.  It’s arranged into neighbourhoods and each neighbourhood has a spine road. Our neighbourhood has way more cars than spaces, so you often get some fun examples of bad parking. This is the most ridiculous one, and it happens fairly frequently. This is the junction at the end of the spine road. As you can see, there are not one but two cars jutting out into roads.”

Tobiwan also apologizes for the fingers in the frame. He was operating on the sly.

  1. Why apologize for fingers in the frame? His hand on the camera is the only thing that’s where it’s supposed to be.

    I just had too look it up since you asked- here’s what Webster’s has to say about a spine road:

    “Main distributor road serving a factory or similar site, from which radiate minor lateral roads running to the various factory buildings. ”

    Or, in other words, one main road with a lot of smaller roads branching off of it.

  3. My friend on Facebook shared this link with me and I’m not dissapointed at all that I came to your blog.
