While you mightn't know this, that has been asked several times before. ProMods won't add it because the game is a truck driving game, not a ferry game. Many people ask this not because it'll add it realism, but to avoid the UK's ugliness (like yourself, I see). Only hope is finding a mod (like liano above me).

The M2 in Kent:

Hi guys, I noticed that the A2 / M2 has been shortened. Are there any plans to rebuild it?

The Northwest has a lot of motorways (M56-M53, M62, M58 along with the proposed extension, M57, M60, M61, M66, M65 with TfN plans to extend it to Bradford, M67 with TfN plans to dual the A628), same with Yorkshire (M18, M180, M62, A1(M)), guess it'll be very interesting to see what the team can come up with for those other large conurbations.

Birmingham itself is a little bit simpler (M42-M6 Toll making the (partial) ring roads, M6 and M5 making the radial routes plus M54, M40 and the northern part of M42). M69 only works if we have both Coventry and Leicester. There are of course a few oddities (like you can't use the M6 to go between M54 and M6 Toll).
It does, but plans are plans, and there is no point even discussing them, because the M67 is a plan that's been going on since 1960s, and most likely isn't going to happen. M58 extension has been dished off ages ago.

What would be a better point of debate is how to rebuilt Liverpool and Manchester efficiently so that M6 runs in between and you get bits of M60 and M62, serving Salford industrial sites (which I think is important to be included; industry is much smaller than it used to be but is still visible in Salford). I think that should be considered. Rest doesn't matter, they're smaller motorways that do not require as much focus. M66 is the worst offender - a motorway into nowhere.

In regards to Birmingham, I hope M40 will make an appearance, as on a quick glance it appears that there is enough space for it. I don't think Coventry or Leicester would fit.

The M2/A2 has been replaced by the M20 which is south of the M2/A2. Due to the scale I don't think they are going to have both the M20 and the M2/A2.

Are there any plans for the North East of England as I think it would be a great place to redevelop as there is only 1 city, that being Newcastle. It has a lot of opportunities with it having lots of industry in places like Teesport , Middlesbrough and Sunderland with different roads for example the A19 which runs from Middlesbrough to Newcastle. As well there is the A66, which connects Teeside, Darlington and County Durham to Cumbria and the M6, passing through a lot of nice countryside and scenery. Newcastle itself could be quite a nice city drive with landmarks like the Tyne bridge between Gateshead and Newcastle. Just a suggestion for the future.

I thought there were 2 cities or is York just a town these days?
