|Places related to the A933|
Arbroath is a historic town on the coast of Angus. A Royal Burgh, famous for its declaration and Smokies, the town is also home to the ruins of an old Abbey and was the land base for the famous Bell Rock Lighthouse, for which a museum sits on the shore. The old harbour is now home to a marina, having lost out to Dundee as a port. The town is therefore a popular tourist destination, but is also within commuter distance of Dundee, and serves as a service town for the surrounding area, with a retail park and busy shopping centre. There is also a large industrial area to the west of the town.
The main road through Arbroath is the A92, which loosely follows the Angus coast east from Dundee, before turning north to Montrose and Aberdeen. In the past it was one of the main routes to Aberdeen, but with the opening of the A90 dual carriageway the A92 is now quieter, and forms part of the Angus Coastal Tourist Route. The other A road in Arbroath is the A933, which heads north west to Brechin, and via the A932 to the county town of Forfar. The A933 splits at the entrance to Arbroath, with a spur skirting the west side of town to meet the A92, whilst the older (but not original) line meets the A92 in the town centre.
Arbroath also has a maze of B roads. Several have changed routes over the years, with the B9095 swapping with the A933. Today, the B9114 follows Millgate Loan from the town centre south, meeting the A92 at each end. The B9095 turns off and runs north west to the A933 along Keptie Street and Keptie Road. The B964 runs vaguely parallel to the B9114, but on the far side of the railway, following Rosemount Road, Addison Place and Lotlands Street. Finally, the B9127 actually leaves the town behind, heading west across the county to Douglastown near Forfar.
