|Route outline (key)|
In 1922 the B2109 was the short link road between the then-B259 (now A259) and the Harbour railway station (now known as Newhaven Marine and closed in practice if not in theory). The southern half of this road is now unclassified as the Marine station no longer needs a classified road running to it (or indeed any form of public access).
The B2109 was extended along previously unclassified roads north of the A259 (following a short multiplex east along it) before 1932. The road went through South Heighton to end on the A274 (now A27) at Beddingham. However, most of this road was taken over by a southern extension of the A26 leaving only the half-mile or so through Mount Pleasant. There's a claim that this section of the B2109 is actually numbered B2238 but maps favour the B2109 number and legislation is undecided.
As such, the B2109 starts by turning off the A26 on the northern edge of town and then heads southeastwards through Mount Pleasant along Avis Road to a roundabout on the A259. There's a brief multiplex west to a GSJ where the A26 is met again and the B2109 regains its number to head south along the narrow Railway Road to end at the junction with the railway approach. The other roads at this junction are unclassified.
