    Hi Gary

    I'd say an 'approach road' is a road that has one specific purpose or use: it is a small road that leads to a specific place or thing (and nowhere else). For example, a special piece of roadway that leads from a highway to a bridge is an approach road (to the bridge). This little road will take you nowhere else except to the bridge.

    "It is a road which leads to ('approaches') an expressway or sometimes to another area of larger or more complex roadway, as toward a roundabout or an airport."

    Thank you Philly. Now, I understood it.

    Also, thanks to Casiopea and Anglika.
