The Ninth Road was a passageway measuring 30 feet across and 15 feet high. It was located in the southern section of Thorbardin and ran northeast and southwest and north and south. The road itself was like every road in Thorbardin, smooth and tunneled. It had two identical pairs of rails running on it. These rails were placed 3 feet below the floor level. On each side of the tracks there was a wide walking area and in the middle of the tracks there was a 6 foot wide raised platform that ran in between them. The Ninth Road connected the Valley of the Thanes to Southgate. The total distance between the two stops was 9 miles. It also traveled through the South Hall of Audience, which was located five miles from Southgate.
