The Central Motorway East

The A6127(M) was the Central Motorway East, skirting the city centre of Newcastle upon Tyne. It is the only part of the Tyneside urban motorway network to be constructed as planned.

The road opened as the A1(M) in 1975 but was then renumbered A6127(M) in 1977 when the A1 was moved east to the Tyne Tunnel to avoid Newcastle upon Tyne. A further wholesale renumbering of Tyneside's roads took place in the early 1990s when the A1 moved to the western bypass. The A6127 was renumbered as an extension of the already existing A167 and the A6127(M) was therefore renumbered as the A167(M). As a result, a mile-long section of motorway has had three separate numbers.
