Route

Towards Eglinton

The B118 is a link road in north County Londonderry.

The road meets the A2 at two roundabouts at either end of the City of Derry Airport, with both sections being rerouted when the A-road was given its present D2 route around 2010. The western spur heads straight into town to reach Main Street at a half roundabout. The eastern spur, meanwhile, now runs alongside the A2 for a short distance before following its original route to the eastern end of Main Street. It TOTSOs right here to pick up the western spur and continue ahead.

The road heads west then south into open country. We climb into the hills then continue southwestwards across undulating terrain to end at a T-junction on the A6

History

The B118 did not exist in the original 1923 Road Lists but had gained its number by the mid-1920s. At that time it was only a loop off the A2 between Eglinton and Greysteel.

The road had been extended south by 1930. The spur to Greysteel appears to have declassified at the same time, with the road given its present, eastern access to the A2 instead.
