I can't say I'm anywhere near an expert (quite significantly closer to
beginner :-), but I don't think this is possible (at least not with the
'route') command.  

My question is why do you want to do it, (eg. is this just to reject
routing from the eth2 connected network...).   If you give a bit more
info about why you want to do this maybe someone will be able to think
of another way to achieve it.
