The glossary of statistical terms, published by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), defines a motorway as a: ‘Road, specially designed and built for motor traffic, which does not serve properties bordering on it, and which:
- ‘is provided, except at special points or temporarily, with separate carriageways for the two directions of traffic, separated from each other, either by a dividing strip not intended for traffic, or exceptionally by other means;
- ‘does not cross at level with any road, railway or tramway track, or footpath;
- ‘is specially sign-posted as a motorway and is reserved for specific categories of road motor vehicles.
