reading large shapefiles

Hi all,

I've recently downloaded a shapefile of the UK.
http://downloads.cloudmade.com/europe/northern_europe/united_kingdom

I've used shaperead to load in smaller regions using a BoundingBox. However I want to be able to read in the entire UK map, filter out particular types of roads, and write a smaller shapefile that contains this trimmed data.

Can anyone help with reading the data in? I'm running out of memory.

cheers in advance!
