The Antrim-Ballymena road
The road between Antrim and Ballymena forms part of the Belfast-Coleraine road. After many years of neglect it was dualled, piecemeal, between 1989 and 2001. It is an all-purpose road with right and �U� turns allowed. This is the view towards Ballymena.

2+1 at Ballynaloob - Geograph - 221046.jpg
2+1 at Ballynaloob
The Belfast-Coleraine road includes motorway, dual carriageway, relatively modern single carriageway and other . . . This bit of �other� was recently rebuilt as a �2+1� climbing lane. The road here at Ballynaloob was infamous for delays caused by caravans and agricultural machinery on the climb from the Ballycastle Fork. This is the view to Coleraine.

Glarryford Cross - the end of the world?

After a long stretch of motorway and dual carriageway, on the road from Belfast to Coleraine and Ballycastle, Glarryford Cross, is where the end of the world begins. There follows 4.2 miles of road which does not really merit the description �A�. There are plans to dual the road � but not in the immediate future . . . .

See <a href='http://www.geograph.org.uk/photo/229789'>D0613 : Glarryford Cross - the end of the world?</a>. This is the Ballycastle Fork where the road to Ballycastle leaves the Belfast-Coleraine road. This is where 4.2 miles of �other road� end. There are now plans to dual the road � see <a title='http://roadimprovements.roadsni.gov.uk/index/futureschemes/a26_glarryford_to_a44_drones_road_dualling.htm' rel='nofollow' href='http://roadimprovements.roadsni.gov.uk/index/futureschemes/a26_glarryford_to_a44_drones_road_dualling.htm'>Link</a><img style='padding-left:2px;' alt='External link' title='External link - shift click to open in new window' src='http://s0.geograph.org.uk/img/external.png' width='10' height='10'/>.
