|Route outline (key)|
The B2017 is a short rural B-road east of Tonbridge.
Originally it started on the A21 on the southern edge of town and headed east along Tudeley Lane. With the building of the A26 eastern bypass in the 1990s this road was declassified and so the B2017 now starts at a roundabout on the A26 Woodgate Way.
It heads east for about a mile to Tudeley where it bends sharply south to pass through the village before taking up its eastward course once more and soon gets to Five Oak Green.
The B2017 originally forked left at Five Oak Green to meet the B2015 (later A228) at Whetstead. In the 2000s this eastern section was declassified and the B2017 rerouted along what was the B2161 across a roundabout on the A228 to end on the B2160 to the south of Paddock Wood.
