The B6393 (former A6103) Lightbowne Road

The A6103 was a short A-road in northeastern Manchester. It was constructed in the mid-1920s and given the A6103 number from the start. It survived until at least the 1970s but has now been downgraded to become an extension of the B6393.

The road started on the A62 Oldham Road in Newton Heath. It headed north along Thorp Road across the railway line before bearing right (there is now a roundabout here and the angle has been somewhat sharpened).

The road continued northeastwards along Lightbowne Road through the suburb of Moston and soon became dual-carriageway. It crossed Broadhurst Park and continued on to meet the A6104 just to the west of Moston station. The road ahead was the B6393.
