|Route outline (key)|
In the original 1922 road numbering, A6002 was allocated to Bedford - Roxton - Chawston in Bedfordshire. However, it actually ended on the A1 at what is now the Black Cat Roundabout - Chawston is the nearest village to this junction.
Starting at a crossroads on the A6 in the centre of Bedford, with the road opposite the A428, the road headed east out of town. It passed no further settlements until Great Barford, where it turned more northeasterly. It continued through Roxton and ended shortly afterwards at the Black Cat.
The A6002 became an extension of the A428 in the 1935 Road numbering revision. In the 1990s the A421 was extended along a new road east of Bedford; this declassified the eastern section via Great Barford, whilst the western section through Bedford became part of the A4280.
