Classifications[edit]

Do we have sources for these "National highways"? I can't seem to find it in the Highways in the Philippines article. Is it even commonly used or applied? Also, I dont understand how streets like Tayuman Street, Letre Road and Mendiola Street can be considered "Major thoroughfares" while much wider, busier arteries like Kalayaan Avenue, Ayala Avenue and Macapagal Boulevard are only "Minor thoroughfares." Again, do you have sources for these classifications or are they original research? The streets divided by area or district actually makes navigation easier and more convenient without having to box them under what seem to be arbitrary categories.--RioHondo (talk) 13:44, 27 May 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]

There is, the DPWH Road Atlas pages by the Department of Public Works and Highways. Plus, national highways are the more commonly used terms. "Provincial highways" are rather roads maintained by the province, not for roads leading to the provinces. Some of the classifications I gave is based on maps. I'll revert it back per my point, but I'll correct some classifications per your statement.--TagaSanPedroAko (talk) 07:59, 1 October 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Numbered routes[edit]

I think it is better to create separate articles for each of the new numbered route of the Philippine highway network instead of linking to their component roads here for each and every route number. That way, we get to keep the Metro Manila streets as independent from either the new N or E highway route or the C or R arterial routes.--RioHondo (talk) 01:54, 9 May 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Well, in my opinion, it depends. If a particular N route is the same as either circumferential or radial roads (i.e. N140 & C-2) then there's no problem for redirect, but like on the case of C-5 which has multiple N & E routes or in the case of AH26 and National Road 1, you're right that it should be separated. -FrjWorld (talk) 14:39, 10 July 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]
