The A6115 formed an east-west route across Tyneside in the days when the A1 went through the Tyne Tunnel. It was originally numbered A69 to the west of Newcastle upon Tyne and A184 to the east. Since the rerouting of the A1 along the western bypass roads in the area have been renumbered again; the A184 has got its old route back whilst the remainder of the ex-A6115 is now part of the A186.

Westgate Road, Newcastle city centre

The road started at the West Denton roundabout on what is now the A191; this was the point where the A69 turned southwards to cross the River Tyne. The A696 started here and headed north whilst the A6115 headed east. It headed through the western suburbs along West Road and Westgate Road, before reaching Newcastle city centre where things get difficult to follow. Presumably the road met the A695 Neville Street opposite Central Station but the route from there on is not known. Given that there are three bridges across the Tyne into Gateshead it must have crossed one of them - the High Level Bridge required a multiplex with the A6125 and the Tyne Bridge a multiplex with the A6127 so it is possible it used the Swing Bridge.

Upon arrival in Gateshead there was definitely a multiplex with the A6127 Gateshead Highway before the A6115 reappeared to head east along Park Lane. It followed the dual carriageway to the east, passing Heworth and Pelaw, before reaching the edge of the urban area. The road ended at the White Mare Pool roundabout, where a flyover took A6115 traffic directly onto the A1 to the east. The other two roads at this roundabout were the A1(M) to the south and A194 to the north.
