|Route outline (key)|
The A6117 forms the Mansfield eastern bypass.
This is a slightly odd road, given that it is rarely mentioned on road signs (except with the roundabout with the A617), and doesn't always appear on mapping. This section, up to the signalised crossroads with the A6191 was built at the same time as the A617 MARR (Mansfield Ashfield Regeneration Route) and opened in 2004. The remaining route winds its way through the eastern suburbs of Mansfield to reach its terminus at the A60.
Some maps show that the route runs as far as Mansfield Woodhouse itself, along Butt Lane, however there is no evidence to show this on the ground.
