|Route outline (key)|
The B292 was a short link road near Bexleyheath in north Kent. Originally unclassified, the road dates to the mid-1930s. The number lasted until the late 1960s before the road was upgraded to become part of the A220, which it remains.
The road started on the A220 to the northeast of Bexleyheath town centre, where that road, heading south along Erith Road, bore right along Mayplace Road West. The B292 headed south from here along the remainder of Erith Road and quickly crossed the A207 Watling Street; this is the original line of the A2 but the road had been diverted before the B292 appeared.
The road now zigzagged, descending Gravel Hill into the valley of the River Cray. The southernmost section of the road has now been bypassed; it ran along what is now Gravel Hill Close to end on the A223 immediately to the east of that road's junction with the A2. Construction of the Black Prince Interchange in 1972 presumably required an upgrade in the local road network - although the B292 had disappeared by then.
