|Route outline (key)|
The B2012 is a very short urban B-road in Maidstone. Within its less-than-one-mile length, it manages to be both D2 and S2. The route number is unsigned on the ground. It is effectively a short cut between the A229 at the White Rabbit roundabout (the last turn off before the one-way system), and the A249 (also just outside of the one way system).
The B2012 leaves the A229 and heads eastwards along a very short stretch of dual carriageway. The road then continues straight over the roundabout and comes immediately to a pedestrian crossing. After this the road is narrow S2 due to on-street parking. The right-hand side of the road is dominated by the wall of Maidstone Prison. The road TOTSOs right at a mini roundabout and heads south east. There are two sets of traffic lights in quick succession, before the road widens. The road then ends at a set of lights on the A249 (which can't seem to decide whether or not it is primary).
