Metroads are the primary road routes serving the Sydney metropolitan area. The Metroads form a network of radial and circumferential routes throughout the city, most are arterial grade roads, and some are freeway grade.

This numbering scheme ensures that main priority routes are clearly identified and marked. Metroads usually completely replaced the State Routes and National Routes along their routes, however, State Routes not on designated Metroads remained unchanged.

The Metroad system was introduced in 1992-93. 1 It was phased out in 2013.
