B5403 Link in Oadby
B5403 Leicester Road
London Road

The B5403 in Oadby near Leicester is part of the original alignment of the A6 through the town. The bypass, which opened in 1931, at first took over the old route's London Road name as well as the A6 designation; however, today the bypass is called Harborough Road.

Our road starts at traffic lights at the eastern end of the bypass and heads northwest along London Road, which is residential. It's not long before houses start to be replaced by shops as we approach the town centre. The B582 comes in from the right along New Street and our road ends on it at a mini-roundabout.

When originally classified, the B5403 took over the whole of the bypassed A6 and so it continued ahead onto Leicester Road, then bore right onto The Parade, the main shopping street and presumably the reason this section of the road is now unclassified. It wasn't long before the road returned to the A6.
