A68 Link in Belfast
The former A68 Corporation Street

The A68 is shown in Esso road atlases as a short link in Belfast.

The road started on the A2 by the Custom House and headed north along Corporation Street and Whitla Street. This road then bore left to return to the A2 York Street by the now-gone York Road station. This was the original route of the A2 through the city. Part of Whitla Street has been destroyed by construction of the M2 (a subway exists for pedestrians), whilst what remains has regained the A2 number as the one-way route from the motorway through the docks.

It is unknown why the A68 number was chosen, rather than a more logical A5xx number (which were allocated to Belfast until the A505 came about a few years before), or the A56, which was (and still is) the lowest available number, or an A1x, which were later allocated to Central Belfast roads.
