Miles?[edit]

Is there any particular reason this article uses miles? Given that the only Asian country which hasn't officially embraced Metrication is Myanmar who appear to have embraced it unofficially and as far as I know most countries in Asia have largely completely embraced metrication and even those that don't are generally only behind in using their own traditional units and do use km for road distances. The UK and USA may still largely use miles for road distances, but they're not really involved much or at all in this and even the two references with distances only have km and don't mention miles at all. I'm considering being bold but thought I'd say something first. It seems this change was added by an Irish user [1] (which I find somewhat funny since our article says the imperial system was regarded as foreign although they have just completed metrication except for a few thigns which doesn't include road distances/miles) Nil Einne (talk) 09:37, 30 November 2009 (UTC)

Blacklisted Links Found on the Main Page[edit]

Cyberbot II has detected that page contains external links that have either been globally or locally blacklisted. Links tend to be blacklisted because they have a history of being spammed, or are highly innappropriate for Wikipedia. This, however, doesn't necessarily mean it's spam, or not a good link. If the link is a good link, you may wish to request whitelisting by going to the request page for whitelisting. If you feel the link being caught by the blacklist is a false positive, or no longer needed on the blacklist, you may request the regex be removed or altered at the blacklist request page. If the link is blacklisted globally and you feel the above applies you may request to whitelist it using the before mentioned request page, or request its removal, or alteration, at the request page on meta. When requesting whitelisting, be sure to supply the link to be whitelisted and wrap the link in nowiki tags. The whitelisting process can take its time so once a request has been filled out, you may set the invisible parameter on the tag to true. Please be aware that the bot will replace removed tags, and will remove misplaced tags regularly.

Below is a list of links that were found on the main page:

  • http://www.roadtraffic-technology.com/projects/asian-highway-network/
    Triggered by \broadtraffic-technology\.com\b on the local blacklist

 Resolved This issue has been resolved, and I have therefore removed the tag, if not already done. No further action is necessary.—cyberbot II NotifyOnline 19:47, 9 April 2014 (UTC)

Three-digit ASEAN highways[edit]

Although there is little documentation for the programme, the Association of Southeast Asian Nations have got a system of roads signified by three-digit numbers, extending the Asian Highway Network. Evidence can be seen for example at http://www.neda.or.th/home/downloadfile.php?path=uploads/download/&file=ujBmV6FWnNILaVP38qB.pdf and http://www.asean.org/storage/images/ASEAN_RTK_2014/4_Master_Plan_on_ASEAN_Connectivity.pdf. Rather than simply deleting these routes, further information should be found and they should be explained with citations. I agree that too much of the Wikipedia coverage on this topic seems to have originated from uncited information from this page, but this should be fixed by finding citations rather than just deleting the information.

Here in the U.S., there are several minor highway systems. Using a process described at WP:USRD/RCS, we combined these route articles into lists, but instead of a simple table, we wrote short mini-articles for each route. Something similar could be done here for the less significant routes. -happy5214 22:49, 4 April 2018 (UTC)

Dubious section[edit]

"Regional perceptions of the project" says there are problems between states, "notably Pakistan and Myanmar”. What dispute do Pakistan and Myanmar have? They don’t even border each other. 2A02:C7D:3C1A:7300:D58D:E355:6DB5:C9E1 (talk) 18:17, 30 October 2019 (UTC)
