Route outline (key)
B45 Dungannon - Caledon
B45 Caledon - Border

The B45 is a cross-country B-road in east County Tyrone.

The road starts on the A45 (former B35) on the western edge of Dungannon and heads south along the shore of Ballysaggart Lough before reaching the A4 Dungannon bypass. At this GSJ, the through route of the B45 has to TOTSO left to go over the bypass before turning left at a roundabout to continue its journey southward.

Eglish Road

The road now follows a straight route across the fields. The street name so far has been Eglish Road and eventually Eglish itself is reached. A short distance further on the B45 bends to the right on meeting the B115 and then the B128 comes in from the left and multiplexes for a short distance.

The B45 continues south along Dyan Road and runs close to the River Blackwater, whose valley (although not the river itself) can just be seen to the left. Eventually the B45 reaches Caledon. It ends in the centre of town at a TOTSO on the A28.

The B45 originally multiplexed along the A28 west through town before heading south along Annaghroe Road to the border at Annaghroe Bridge, where it connected with the L5, later designated the R185.

For most of the life of the road, however, Annaghroe Bridge was out of commission and the section of road from Caledon (although still the B45) was in poor repair. The bridge was one of the last cross-border routes reinstated, in October 2010. Oddly, although the road is now reconnected, the section of B45 between Caledon and the border was downgraded to U0539 on 11 February 2013 [1].
