|Route outline (key)|
The road starts at the Altnagelvin Roundabout on the A6. It heads east along the D2 Crescent Link, initially between a hospital and a retail park. The road gradually bears round to the left, emphasising the name crescent.
Although the road is the city's eastern bypass it runs inside the urban area. As such there are frequent side roads serving suburbs, some served by gaps in the central reservation, and the occasional set of traffic lights for a pedestrian crossing. The first roundabout, serving the B530, is soon reached. The road then passes a retail park, which is accessed by another roundabout.
The road continues north, finally running along the edge of the urban area itself. However, it's not long before a further roundabout is reached, the Caw Roundabout on the A2, where the A514 ends. The ring road continues ahead - but this is numbered A515.
