This article is about the Class III road numbered C549 maintained by DfI Roads.
For other roads numbered C549, see C549
The C549 forms a back route between Maghera and Kilrea. In Maghera, the road leaves the A42 and follows Station Road and TOTSOs onto Crew Road which leads it out into the countryside. Heading north east, the road meets the C550 at Culnady and soon crosses the Clady River. The road straightens out somewhat as it passes its junctions with the C559 and the C546, before abruptly turning north. After crossing the C548, the road eventually reaches Kilrea and ends at a roundabout on the A54.
