|Distance:||4.2 km (2.6 miles)|
|Former Number(s):||B143, U9150|
|Route outline (key)|
The C707 starts at Dernawilt Crossroads and nearly immediately loses its centre line. The road is rather straight and uneventful, and soon Lacky Bridge and the border with County Monaghan is reached. The road ahead is County Monaghan's L2101, while the narrow road to the right leads to the current B143.
However, the C707 hasn't ended yet. Continuing along the L2101 leads back to the border, where the C707 resumes. However, this section is also uneventful, and it doesn't take long before crossing into the Republic of Ireland again. The C707 ends at this border. This section was not part of the pre-2013 B143, however was part of an older route, before it was moved onto a more direct route, making this section of the road part of the U9150 unclassified road. However, when the B143 north of Lacky Bridge was downgraded to Class III, this section was upgraded to the C707.
- The Roads (Classification) Order (Northern Ireland) 2013 - his Order provides for the classification of newly constructed or realigned roads and for the re-classification of roads or lengths of road which have, in consequence, been superseded as main traffic routes.
