The main aim is to have a carriageway (road) network maintained to a level that ensures a surface that is safe and accessible for all users and provides a high degree of street-scene quality for local residents; and the quality of the road infrastructure is maintained in a steady state.

Milton Keynes has a total of 1251 kilometres of roads.

This main carriageway network was constructed within a relatively short period of time (1969 to 1994), this network is unique in that its primary carriageways follow a grid pattern of high speed road intersected by roundabouts. This grid network accommodates some of the Principal roads and some of the Non-principal roads in Milton Keynes, the rest of the grid network is identified as 'unclassified' roads.

The road network within the early Milton Keynes grid square estates follows a similar grid type layout all interfacing with the surrounding grid network. Later estates whilst contained within the 'grid square' have followed more traditional estate layouts and have moved away from the grid pattern.

The network outside of the designated area follows traditional road geometries and classifications linking traditional older towns such as Newport Pagnell, Olney and Woburn Sands with the newly established 'grid road' network.

Milton Keynes also benefits from network interfaces with both the A5 trunk road (6 junctions) and two junctions with the M1 motorway (Junction 13 and 14).
