|Route outline (key)|
The road originally ran along part of Wellington Road between the A627 and A670. When the latter was diverted away from the town centre the A6043 was extended along part of Penny Meadow so it still met the A670, then in 2012 the majority of the A6043 was bypassed by the new Albion Way relief road, which ends in more-or-less the same place.
