A motorway is a dual-carriageway limited access highway with grade separated junctions designed and built solely for motorised traffic. The term is used in the United Kingdom, some parts of Australia, New Zealand, Pakistan, some other English-speaking Commonwealth nations, and Ireland. In Ireland, a road built to motorway standard, but without the designation (and the regulations and traffic restrictions resulting from that designation), is known as a high-quality dual carriageway. Motorways are identical to freeways as a road type, and comparable to the United States's Interstate Highways as a classification; for all intents and purposes the nomenclatures are synonymous with each other.
