|Route outline (key)|
The B9111 was a short link road in the centre of Stirling. It was originally unclassified; owing to its short length its history is not fully known but it had definitely gained its number by the mid-1950s and probably some years earlier.
Originally the A9 ran straight through the middle of Stirling along Barnton Street, Port Street and St Ninian's Road. The A811 (Dumbarton Road) and A905 (Upper Craigs) terminated at a crossroads at the southern end of the main shopping areas. In the north east quadrant of this crossroads lies the railway station and what was a small industrial area amongst the goods yard; the B9111 ran through this.
Starting on the A905 just west of the railway line, the B9111 ran along Goosecroft Road, cutting the corner from the A905 to the station. However, before getting there it bore left to skirt the goods yard and followed Thistle Street to end on the A9 Murray Place.
Following construction of the present route of the A9 the B9111 was taken over as part of a one-way loop on the A811, whilst Thistle Street was destroyed by the construction of the Thistles Shopping Centre. More recently the ex-B9111 has been renumbered as part of a rerouted B8052.
