MUTCD RS-086.svg Deletion requests
A subpage for the AARoads project

Please add {{RFD}} to the top of a page that has been nominated here. If it is a template, be sure to add noinclude tags.

Discussions will generally last 14 days. Discussions with very clear consensus may be closed after 7 days. However, a SNOW close should not be done unilaterally and should be rare.

Should no option earn an absolute majority after 14 days, the discussion will be relisted in the form of an approval poll of all options that received at least one vote in the discussion. The option with a plurality of votes in the approval poll after 14 days will prevail. Should no option earn a plurality of votes in the approval poll, the discussion will be closed as "no consensus", which defaults to the page being kept.

Admins: when closing a request, be sure to remove {{RFD}} in the event the page is kept. It is permissible to close a discussion you have voted in, though caution should be exercised in contentious cases.

The following cases do not warrant a deletion request and can be speedy deleted by an administrator without discussion:

  • Spam
  • Vandalism
  • Clear copyright violations
  • Blatant hoaxes
  • Attack pages
  • Test pages
  • Reposting of previously deleted material
  • Pages that are obviously not related to roads
  • Any pages in your own userspace

Administrators may also perform routine maintenance deletions (for example: unused template subpages, orphaned talk pages, and duplicate articles) without discussion.

Mexican Federal Highway 18

I don't think this highway exists. The only source is to a general Mexican highway map that doesn't seem to include a Highway 18 (I couldn't find it, at least, and there's no section number in the citation). The article itself doesn't have any information about which cities or states the highway serves. I couldn't find any other evidence that this exists; Google Maps does appear to mark a road in Baja California Sur as Federal Highway 18, but it's unpaved and isn't signed in Street View, so I don't think that's actually a federal highway.

  • Move to appropriate state highway location, the map at [1] hints that the federal highway 18 in Google Maps/Guia Roji is actually state. --Rschen7754 21:35, 14 February 2024 (EST)
    • I will note that while we know it is in Baja California Sur, we don't know that it is necessarily BCS-18. [2] has that road as "Ramal al Arco". Without a SH log for BCS it is hard to tell any further. --Rschen7754 14:02, 15 February 2024 (EST)
      • Delete ultimately. We can't prove that the author had the BCS road in mind when creating this article and there isn't anything worth saving. --Rschen7754 21:24, 19 February 2024 (EST)
  • Delete - No evidence this route exists and article provides no context. Dough4872 23:36, 18 February 2024 (EST)
  • Delete – We can always undelete. –Fredddie 21:12, 19 February 2024 (EST)

Mexican Federal Highway 26

Another one that I don't think is a real highway. No information on where it is, it doesn't seem to be on the map cited, it's not listed in our sources for Mexico, and I can't find any other sources to verify it exists. Possibly a mix-up with Federal Highway 36 based on the article history, which already has its own article. TheCatalyst31 ReactionCreation 20:19, 18 February 2024 (EST)

  • Delete. Did you mean Mexican Federal Highway 36? LilianaUwU (talk / contributions) 20:25, 18 February 2024 (EST)
  • Delete I haven't been able to find anything either. Unlike enwiki, deletion requests shouldn't be a death sentence; if we find something one day (or if the government decides to use the number one day), we can reverse course. --Rschen7754 20:28, 18 February 2024 (EST)
  • Delete - No evidence this route exists and article provides no context. Dough4872 23:36, 18 February 2024 (EST)

Mexican Federal Highway 28

I found another one - no location information, one source that's a general map of Mexico, doesn't show up in gmaps, and I can't find any sources. TheCatalyst31 ReactionCreation 00:35, 19 February 2024 (EST)

  • Delete - No evidence this route exists and article provides no context. Dough4872 00:40, 19 February 2024 (EST)
  • Delete per above. --Rschen7754 00:47, 19 February 2024 (EST)
