B4620 Loughor - Cadle
Looking towards Swansea along the B4620 in Gorseinon

The B4620 follows the route of the former A4070 from Loughor to Fforestfach in the northwestern suburbs of Swansea. The present number dates to the 1990s.

Starting from a roundabout junction with the A4240 in Loughor, it runs eastsoutheastwards (following the alignment of an ancient Roman road) through the southern fringes of Gorseinon. It intersects the B4296 at two mini-roundabouts before passing the south side of Gorseinon Garden Village.

The A484 is crossed at Days roundabout, Garngoch, and shortly afterwards – at Llewitha Bridge – the road name changes from Swansea Road to Carmarthen Road. In Fforestfach the old A4070 originally continued straight up the hill from the crossroads by the post office to meet the A483 at a junction with Middle Road and Pontarddulais Road. In order to prevent "rat running" that section is now, however, a dead end except for buses, and the B4620 turns left along Ffordd Cynore to reach the A483 at a signalized crossroads at the northern end of the Fforestfach Retail Park, Cadle.
