|Route outline (key)|
The B102 is an urban road through the southwest suburbs of Belfast. The road was originally unclassified but gained its number in the mid-1920s.
The road starts at a roundabout on the A501 by Milltown Cemetery and heads south past a few houses and the Kennedy Shopping Centre to cross the A55 at a roundabout. We now continue along a road wide enough for a bus lane on both sides past the Casement Park Gaelic football stadium and on through the suburbs.
We wind past houses and shops and the occasional other building, with a brief green section as we cross Colin Glen. After crossing the surprisingly large Michael Ferguson roundabout (named after a local politician) the road becomes less built up as we pass parkland and then run between housing estates. Presently we reach journey's end at a roundabout on the A512. Before that road was inaugurated the B102 continues ahead a short distance further to end on the A1, although its route is no longer obvious.
