|Route outline (key)|
The B194 is a short link road through the northern suburbs of Derry. The road was originally unclassified, gaining its number in the late 1920s. The majority of wholly urban B-roads in the city are numbered B5xx; our road is an exception as it is now much shorter than when first classified.
The road starts at traffic lights on the western branch of the A2 in the Pennyburn area of town and heads north past a row of shops before becoming residential. We then climb along Racecourse Road past a recreation ground and cross a mini-roundabout before the B526 turns off to the right. After another couple of shops the road TOTSOs left into Bradleys Pass to end at a T-junction on the B521.
Originally there was no TOTSO and the B194 continued ahead; this route has now been severed, presumably when the A515 northern bypass was built. The B194 continued northeast along Racecourse Road to enter open country and shortly end at the border. The road ahead to Muff and the T73 (now R238) appears always to have been unclassified.
