Route

The A613 was originally what is currently the B600 between Nuthall and Alfreton. This route formed the pre-motorway era link between Nottingham and Alfreton. The arrival of the M1 provided a faster route and resulted in the reclassification of the A613.

Nuthall - Underwood

The B600 (former A613) in Greasley

The route originally started half a mile up the road from where the B600 presently starts, at the junction between Nottingham Road and Watnall Road (Nottingham Road formally being the A610 before this road was rerouted slightly south to form J26 of the M1). The A613 headed north-west along Watnall Road until it reached Underwood. Here it briefly multiplexed with the A608 before continuing north until reaching the settlement of Selston. At Selston the route made a westerly change in direction towards Somercotes, where it then turned north again into Alfreton. Just before becoming the High Street in Alfreton, the route met what was the original alignment of the A615 from Mansfield (now the B6019), where it terminated.

History

Initally with the arrival of the M1, in 1966, the A613 was extended to the current terminus of the B600, at Nuthall roundabout. This was due to the A610 moving slightly to the south and to avoid the A613 terminating on an unclassified road, it took over this small section of the old A610. However the extension of the M1 to J28 and the opening of the new A615 Alfreton bypass (now the A38) only a few months later provided a much faster route between Nottingham and Alfreton. It was then only a matter of time before the A613 was reclassified as the B600. No trace of the A613 number can be found on maps since the early 1970s.
