The B9034 was the highest-numbered Class II road on mainland Britain in the 1922 Road Lists. It is a very short road (officially just 241 m long) in the east central district of Fraserburgh. It connects the A90 to the terminus of the A98, via Victoria Street, Seaforth Street, and Station Brae (the latter of which is one-way westbound).
The original justification for its Class II status is probably the fact that it led from the main A90 (originally numbered A92 here) to Fraserburgh railway station (closed to passengers in 1965 and demolished in 1983).
Old OS Mapping suggests that the B9034 may for a time have also extended north along Dalrymple Street to meet the end of the A98 at the harbour. However, Dalrymple Street would now appear to constitute the last few metres of the A98. Sadly the scale of the MOT Map from 1922 makes it difficult to be certain which was the original situation.
