|Route outline (key)|
The B9072 is a very short route in the middle of Lerwick, the capital of the Shetland Islands. It runs along the steep Harbour Street; this no longer seems to serve a purpose as a classified route, but presumably once formed an important link.
The road originally ran between the A969 Esplanade and A968 (later renumbered A970) King Harald Street. Some time after 1986 the road layout in Lerwick was improved and the A-roads at the western end was bypassed; however, this end of the road remained in the same place, so the road now ends on an unclassified road.
