|Route outline (key)|
A6188 is in use in 2019 on certain Ordnance Survey mapping for a route to the east of Stockport Town Centre, formerly parts of A626 and B5465. Stockport Council are in the process of gradually updating traffic signs around the area to reflect this new change, so it is not a mapping error.
The northernmost point of the road is at the junction between A6 Wellington Road and the former A626 Manchester Road in Heaton Chapel, where it heads roughly SSE via Tiviot Way to M60 J27. Following this, it continues to follow the former A626 via St. Mary's Way, before transitioning onto the former B5465 part of the same road and Hempshaw Lane, and finally terminating back on the A6.
