A195(M) Washington - the evidence

Reported via mobile in the Sign Obscured (NH) category anonymously at 22:44, Saturday 2 March 2024

Sent to National Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5659299.

I know this sign just say the A195 not anything about the A195(M) heres everything i found ave taken some pictures of the motorway spur running east of A1(M) J64 in Washington. An unusual piece of motorway - - Dual 2 and 3 lane with no hard shoulder - Abrupt End-of-Motorway heading east between junctions - No start of motorway sign heading west - Route confirmation markers call it the A195 despite being motorway at the time I call this road the A195(M) due to being the A195 and a motorway. What do you think?
