The root page in the section navigation includes the drop down mega menu. The remainding items in the navigation then follow, with drop downs to any child pages.

The footer includes a couple of additional lists of links. This includes a list of directories.
Social media links are also included in the footer.
The same navigation features apply to mobile navigation but the interface changes slightly.
