Route

The A6014 Oakley Road

The A6014 is a road running into Corby, Northamptonshire, from the south.

It starts at a roundabout on the A6003 at Great Oakley signed Corby. It heads northeastwards along Oakley Road, an S2 road which is on a sufficiently wide alignment to be D2.

The road crosses a couple of roundabouts serving the suburbs of Corby, although the road itself has no buildings on it. There is a short D2 section approaching the first roundabout, which lasts as far as the second.

After the fourth roundabout the road finally becomes built-up. We pass a Lidl and reach a final roundabout on the A427 on the edge of the town centre.

History

What is now the A6014 was originally unclassified but became the B6481 in 1935, then the A6014 in the 1950s, presumably when the A427 was given its present route through town.

The original southern end of the A6014 was on the original line of the A6003 (which is no longer obvious) to the west of our present D2 section, with the A6003 then following Oakley Road for a short distance to the southwest. When the A6003 was given its current route the A6014 took over a short section of that road, albeit heavily improved.
