Longest Straight Road?

Just curious. Anyone have an idea where the longest straight stretch of road is in the UK? (Forget the ups and downs, otherwise the answer will be about two miles!)
When you can drive down it without turning the steering wheel.

--The world's longest road without bends is in Saudi Arabia, the road connects Harad area with Badha on the UAE boarder. The road is about 260 km, 160 miles, and at night you can see cars coming on the opposite direction from very far distance. But when you drive, watch for camels that cross the road.
Australia - The "90 Mile Straight" nearly 1,000km to the east of Perth on the Nullabor Plain, Australia. This road is 90 miles or 146km long and while it goes up or down a bit, following the contours of the land, it does so without any bend, kink or deviation.
And
The record for the longest straight section of railway in the world (478 km) is the Trans-Australian Railway, upon which runs the Indian-Pacific passenger train that crosses the Nullarbor from Perth to Sydney via Adelaide.
http://wiki.answers.com/Q/What_is_the_worlds_longest_straight_road_without_any_corners_or_bends_going_from_point_a_to_point_b_directly ----------- The Pan-American Highway begins in Alaska. It passes through Canada the United States and Mexico. Then it continues down the West Coast of South America all the way to Chile. Altogether, the highway passes through 12 counties. It passes through jungles and mountains, the road is approx. 16,000 miles long. At this time, only one 54 mile stretch of the road remains to be completed. http://wiki.answers.com/Q/What_is_the_longest_straight_stretch_of_road_in_the_world -------------------------- Longest straight road in the world?
Here's a challenge Where's the longest straight stretch of road in the world?
I've come up with two candidates:
Number one is Highway 46 in North Dakota, USA. It's apparently 123 miles in length and runs from Streeter to Hickson. However, a web page describing this road says: "Every "straight" road shifts a little bit here and there, bending just a bit around a rock or a tree or making an adjustment to cross a bridge. So does Hwy 46. But this road has a reputation, and it should be held to a higher standard. With this in mind, the best that offers -- its longest straight-as-an-arrow, lock your steering wheel and take a nap stretch -- extends nearly 31 miles, from Gackle to Beaver Creek. Compared to 123 miles that doesn't sound like much, but it's still impressive, especially for a two-lane blacktop."

My second candidate is the "90 Mile Straight" nearly 1,000km to the east of Perth on the Nullabor Plain, Australia. This road is 90 miles or 146km long and while it goes up or down a bit, following the contours of the land, it does so without any bend, kink or deviation.http://forums.govteen.com/showthread.php?p=3400158 ------------- Images of Longest Straight Road http://images.google.ca/images?hl=en&source=hp&q=Longest+Straight+Road&um=1&ie=UTF-8&ei=K7jhStXJJNGJtgec8NC_AQ&sa=X&oi=image_result_group&ct=title&resnum=4&ved=0CBwQsAQwAw
