|trunk and local roads|
I know I've heard "trunk" used here in the US but it turns out that it's much more commonly used in England. Here's what I found on Wikipedia.
"Though the term trunk road is not commonly used in American English, the U.S. highway and Interstate highway systems can be considered American trunk highways. However, individual states are responsible for actual highway construction and maintenance, even though the federal government helps fund these activities as long as the states enact certain laws and enforce them. Each state maintains all of its roads and tries to integrate them into a system appropriate for that state. Notably, the states of Michigan and Wisconsin designate their highways as "state trunklines" and "state trunk highways," respectively."
Anyway, trunk roads are major, main roads and probably not "branches."
