Route

Carmelite Street, Banff

The B9142 is a loop off the A98 winding its short way through some of the oldest streets of the royal burgh of Banff. Its middle section is divided between the parallel Bridge and Carmelite Streets, the former very narrow (and one-way from west to east). Whilst it passes the town's two supermarkets, the route is largely just back streets today.

History

The original route of the B9142

Prior to the opening of the half-hearted A98 Banff Bypass in the early 1960s, the A98 itself followed most of the modern route of the B9142, along Bridge Road, Bridge Street and Low Street. However, when the A98 was moved south onto the new road, the B9142 took over the old route, whilst retaining its own old route along Carmelite Street and through to the Old Market Place. That route hadn't been numbered in 1922, but seems to have been given the B9142 number in the 1930s.
