Scotland Road was a long corridor that ran the entire length of the ship along the port side of E Deck. It was used by crew members and steerage passengers to quickly move between the ends of the ship. There was also an entrance from shore here, single men boarded the ship at this entrance and ended up on Scotland Road. Several Third Class areas could be reached from Scotland Road like the open space and the dining room. The boiler rooms also had an exit on Scotland Road.
The name "Scotland Road" was given affectionately by members of the ship's crew, many of whom hailed from Liverpool. Scotland Road remains a major thoroughfare in the northern part of the city. Crew members from the surrounding area noted the similarity with the corridor on Titanic, which played a similar role as a primary route, hence the name.
When the ship was sinking, Scotland Road allowed the water to quickly flood all compartments accessible through the road. Because the water could only move this freely at port side, Titanic started to list to port as soon as E Deck flooded at 1:00 A.M. and the developing starboard list was countered. Scotland Road was severed in two when the ship broke up.
Scotland Road briefly appeared in the 1997 Film Titanic. When Jack and Rose broke a door to escape a flooding corridor, they ended up in Scotland Road. A steward wanted to charge them for damaging White Star Line property, but he received a double "shut-up" from Jack & Rose.
