|Route outline (key)|
The B2194 is a T-shaped B-road in the Sussex coastal town of Portslade by Sea. The road was originally the B2125, which was quickly upgraded to become the A293. However, it became the B2194 in the 1960s.
The road starts at a mini-roundabout on the B2193 Trafalgar Road and heads east along Victoria Road, which is traffic-calmed and largely residential, although it does pass a recreation ground and some light industry.
At the end of the road a T-junction is reached and the B2194 goes in both directions. This road actually runs along the boundary between Portslade and Hove; owing to lack of agreement in the past it has a different street name on the two sides - it is Boundary Road in Hove whereas in Portslade it is Carlton Terrace to the left and Station Road to the right.
Carlton Terrace (the one-time B2192) heads north past a few shops before becoming residential, soon ending at traffic lights on the A270, with the A2038 the road ahead. Meanwhile Station Road heads south, crossing the railway line immediately at a level crossing by Portslade station (which is actually in Hove). Again shops give way to private houses but then there are more shops at the far end, before the road ends at traffic lights on the A259.
