|Route outline (key)|
The original B9002 ran from the A96 in Inverurie to the A92 in Fraserburgh along the direct route via Oldmeldrum and New Deer. However, the road number was short-lived as it was upgraded to become the A981 in the early 1930s, and by 1932 the B9002 number had already been re-allocated.
Since then the A981 has been curtailed, with the southern terminus now being New Deer, explaining why two Class I roads end on each other there. The former B9002 route to the south is now part of a circuitous B9170.
