|Route outline (key)|
The B106 is a winding road in the south of County Tyrone.
The road starts at an awkward corner on the A45 to the southwest of Coalisland and heads south across the fields. We soon reach Bush, where we TOTSO left. The road loses the centre line as it continues south but gains it again just before going over the M1 to enter Laghey. The B34 is crossed at a mini-roundabout in the village centre.
We continue southeastwards, now S2 once more, before having to TOTSO right. The road ahead is a spur of the B106; it quickly TOTSOs left to head back north again, ending on the B34 to the west of Tamnamore. The mainline of the B106 continues southwest past a number of farms to reach Moy and the A29. There's a brief multiplex to the right across The Square then the B106 turns left to regain its number.
The road skirts the southern edge of town then TOTSOs right to return to open fields. We then follow a winding, sometimes narrow, route across undulating terrain before the road ends on the B128 to the east of Benburb.
The B106 was originally unclassified but gained its number in the mid-1920s. At that time it only ran between the A4 (present B34) at Laghey Corner and A29 at Moy but it had been extended south to Benburb by 1930.
The road had been extended the other way, north to Coalisland, by the late 1940s but still remained a single route. It was not until the end of the 20th century that it gained its spur.
