|Route outline (key)|
The A6041 is a short urban A-road in Salford.
Starting just south of Broughton Bridge at a TOTSO on the southbound A5066, the A6041 runs southeastward along Blackfriars Road. It crosses the A6042 ring road at traffic lights before going under the railway line and reaching Chapel Street. Here it cannons off the A6 and continues northeastward along Chapel Street, ending at traffic lights on the A56 Victoria Bridge Street, with the latter road taking over the forward route along the remainder of Chapel Street.
The starting-point was shifted northwestward to its present location in the 1960s, with the A6041 taking over the route of the former B6184.
In 2012, the A56 was diverted away from Manchester Cathedral, taking over the eastern end of Chapel Street from the A6041, with the result that the latter road now lies wholly within the City of Salford.
