|Route outline (key)|
The original B2174 was a road found in the eastern part of Dartford. It gained its number in the late 1920s following construction of the A2 (present A296) and was then downgraded in 1972 when the A2 was rerouted onto the second Dartford bypass. Although some maps still show this road as classified, on the ground it is clearly unclassified.
The road today is a typical end-of-town road lined with mainly residential buildings. The Bluewater Shopping Centre, built in an old quarry, is hidden behind the trees to the right.
