The Newtownards to Comber road The road from Newtownards to Comber passes close to Strangford Lough and is almost at sea level. Part of it is dual carriageway. This is the view to Comber at Longlands. This area is known for producing �Comber� potatoes.

The Bangor to Newtownards road near Conlig The Bangor to Newtownards road was dualled in the early 70�s. This is the view to Newtownards just south of Conlig. There is a story (apocryphal perhaps) that the Iron Lady, on her first visit to NI, was taken on a tour of the quieter areas. It seems that she thought that this road was too good for the traffic then using it and promptly �handbagged� the NI entire roads budget. It is only just starting to recover!
Newtownards Road roundabout, Bangor The Newtownards Road roundabout is one of five on the Bangor ring road. It is also the busiest. Just as I was returning my camera to its bag I heard the distinctive �nee-naw� from the nearby fire station. This is the result. Note: part of the roundabout is in J5080.
The Ballygowan Road, Saintfield Not just the road from Saintfield (behind me) to Ballygowan. It was the main road between Newtownards and the county town of Downpatrick in the days when a county town was a place of importance. It also marks the end of real Co Down drumlin country.
