|Route outline (key)|
The A30 is a short A-road in south Antrim.
Its exact southern end, in Lisburn, is not obvious. Its original end was on the now-bypassed A1 Bow Street in the centre of town. It then headed north up Antrim Street and Antrim Road where a road sign exists showing that the A30 TOTSOs left along Ballymacash Road. In reality, of course, traffic would use the A519 western bypass to join the A30 Ballymacash Road.
The A30 leaves town to the northwest and climbs into the hills. It meets the A501 from Belfast about halfway along before ending at a T-junction on the A26 Glenavy bypass. The original western end of the road was in the centre of town on what is now the B12.
