|Route outline (key)|
The B126 is a short road to the north of Belfast city centre. The road was originally unclassified but owing to its short length its history is not fully known.
It is assumed that the road originally started on the B23 King Street and headed north along Millfield and Carrick Hill, crossing the A6 just before the B88 Frederick Street turned off to the right. All of this, however, has now become the A11 and so the B126 now starts at traffic lights at the Frederick Street junction.
We head north along North Queen Street and quickly go under the A12. The road passes a playground and shopping centre and then becomes wholly residential. The B501 is crossed at traffic lights and then we continue to end at a T-junction on the A2 York Road.
