Originally the Old Castletown Road, linking the centre of Douglas to the A5, it was rerouted (with the old road blocked off), taking over part of the A24 and an unclassified road to form a box around west Douglas. Recently, it was extended further, taking over the A23 to reach the A21.


OS Landranger mapping showing the A6 to Cronk-ny-Mona

The Ordnance Survey show the A6 along the entire A21 to Cronk-ny-Mona, and document evidence[1] shows that this change is official. Signage, however still shows the A21 to be in existence.
