We are not allowed to copy directly from any 3rd-party maps or aerials, but they can be used for research.

Online maps

National mapping

http://www.google.co.uk/maps - including Street View which sometimes has more recent pictures than you see on the map (check the dates), especially when a new road is constructed over an old one. Useful for working out new junctions.

http://www.bing.co.uk/maps - also includes OS maps for some zoom levels.

http://www.openstreetmap.com - possibly more up-to-date, but don't rely on it.

Ordnance Survey OpenData - Comprehensive map useful for determining road types.

City of London Interactive Streetworks map - gives access to OS UK-wide detailed mapping showing building names and house numbers. Very useful for checking the location of user-added places. Opens focussed on City of London showing current and planned streetworks but can be panned and zoomed to other locations.

Highways England Network Managemant Map - PDF 5.09MB Map of roads managed by Highways England, trunk roads etc.

National roadworks

http://www.trafficengland.com - Roadworks & closure information on roads managed by Highways England.

https://one.network - information about roadworks, road closures and diversions affecting the UK road network.

https://trafficscotland.org - Roadworks & closure information on roads in Scotland.

https://www.roadworksscotland.org/ - information supplied by roads authorities, undertakers and other third parties in Scotland.

Road Databases

These can be useful when trying to figure out the names of junctions, restrictions and classifications.

http://www.cbrd.co.uk/motorway/ (Motorway database, and other good stuff. Not always up-to-date)

http://www.sabre-roads.org.uk/wiki/index.php?title=Main_Page (Wiki of UK roads)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:Roads_in_the_United_Kingdom (Wikipedia - duh!)

http://www.roadsuk.com Loads of information about UK roads, including history, road numbering, signage, etc.

http://www.pathetic.org.uk A great site about British Motorways, their history, secret ones, lost ones and unfinished ones. Worth a read.

New Roads and Junctions

When mapping new roads or junction layouts, the big online map sites are often months or years behind. These resources can help you figure out what's what:

http://roads.highways.gov.uk/ (Highways Agency road projects - other sites for Scotland and Wales)

http://www.sabre-roads.org.uk/forum/ (Sabre forum - often has threads about specific projects)

http://www.google.co.uk/maps (Streetview sometimes has more recent pictures than you see on the map, especially when a new road is constructed an old one. Useful for working out new junctions)
