OS MasterMap Highways Network

A detailed, accurate and up-to-date road routing network for Great Britain

OS MasterMap Highways Network provides all the highways data you need, in one place. It’s a new, common and authoritative view of the whole road network in Great Britain, ideal for routing and public sector data-sharing.

OS MasterMap Highways Network

For all highways stakeholders, OS MasterMap Highways Network is data you can trust. It draws on authoritative sources and helps underpin the common operational picture that leads to faster, better decisions.

A common highways data set means a common understanding of where incidents are happening, and what’s happening in the surrounding area. OS MasterMap Highways Network – Roads will give you detailed information about planned roads and roads under construction, helping you to better understand the roads of today and the roads of tomorrow.

OS MasterMap Highways Network is updated and released monthly.

Turn Restrictions

In OS MasterMap Highways Network, the restriction information is not applied to the base network, but is referenced. This allows the range of information collected to be extended in the future and minimise the impact on customers not concerned with routing information. The main categories of restriction information captured are as follows:

  • One way
  • No entry
  • Access restrictions
  • Height restrictions
  • Turn restrictions
  • Mandatory turns

To whom the restrictions apply and any time constraints are also captured.

Essential Links

Thanks to the Unique Street Reference Number (USRN), this data links to OS AddressBase so you can search for or navigate to an address, improve consultation about roadworks, and identify installations like electricity substations.

The Road layer of OS MasterMap Highways Network is designed to work with OS MasterMap Topography Layer, joining together the best from Ordnance Survey products. Highways Network focuses on joining the topographic identifiers (TOIDs) between these products to enable various applications, from doorstep deliveries to managing streetworks and capital assets more effectively.
