|Route outline (key)|
The A6 is the main road from Belfast to Derry in Northern Ireland. The first section to Randalstown is shadowed by the M2 and M22, which ends just before the boundary with County Londonderry. From here, the road is predominantly rural single carriageway as far as Derry.
The section between Dungiven and west of Claudy was straightened in the 1960s when the A6 route swapped numbers with the shorter B74.
