    Default "in a month's time" "take a road"

    I have two questions.
    What does "in a month's time" mean?
    What does "take a road" mean?
    Please tell me the meanings of those phrases.

    Some context would allow for more precise answers.

    Thank you very much,Raymott.
    "take a road" is used in this sentence.
    "I took a road that went along a narrow vally,and then up onto the moor again.

    Yes, it's just a way of saying, "I drove along a road", "I chose a road".
    'Take' has many uses meaning "choose and use":
    "Take the first turn on the left", "Take a seat", "Take your partners for a dance", "Take a number, divide it by two ..."
