List of road routes in Victoria (numeric)

This article is about numeric road routes in Victoria. For alphanumeric road routes, see List of road routes in Victoria.

Road routes in Victoria assist drivers navigating roads throughout the state, as roads may change names several times between destinations, or have a second local name in addition to a primary name. There are two main route numbering schemes with numeric and alphanumeric routes. The original route numbering scheme, now known as the Metropolitan Route Numbering Scheme and restricted to the Melbourne metropolitan area, consists of numbered National Highways, National Routes, and State Routes, each identified with a different shield-shaped route marker. The Statewide Route Numbering Scheme, introduced in the 1990s, has replaced the previous scheme outside Melbourne, and some routes within Melbourne. It consists of alphanumeric routes, which are a one-to-three digit number prefixed with a letter – M, A, B, or C – that denotes the grade and importance of the road.[1]

Some routes, in part or in their entirety, may have been made obsolete by the alpha-numeric designation: these replacement routes are noted but not listed in full here. Some also may follow older alignments or routes later changed even after the new system was introduced, and are included here for the sake of completion. Roads are described in either a west-east or north-south alignment.
