|Route outline (key)|
The B135 is a winding road in south County Armagh. It was originally unclassified but gained its number in the late 1920s.
The road can be thought of in two sections. The first section runs from a recently improved junction with the A29 about 1.7 miles south of Newtownhamilton to the village of Cullyhanna. This section is typical of NI B roads: reasonably well aligned and surfaced. The main threat to the surface on this section is road repairs elsewhere, as a large road contractor is based on this section and accounts for most of the HGV traffic.
At Cullyhanna, the B135 passes along a narrow street and proceeds towards Crossmaglen. With the exception of a few very short sections, the rest of the route is narrow and twisting, usually not wide enough for a white line, and has more in common with the unclassified road network. Consequently, the route is not suitable for large vehicles, which would use the A29 and B30 to travel towards Crossmaglen.
