|Route outline (key)|
The original A6006 was a short link near Castle Donington between the A6 (now numbered A50) and the A453 (now numbered B6540). It was, as many highly numbered early A-roads were, a very short stretch of road. Unlike many of those short A roads though, it survived a fairly long time, until 1970-71, when it was declassified.
The road is now closed to through traffic. Following an upgrade there is no longer any connection to the A50 at the southern end.
