The now-abandoned former A6006

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 at least the early 1970s, when it was declassified. [1]

The road is now closed to through traffic. Following an upgrade there is no longer any connection to the A50 at the southern end.
