Route

Junction of the A38 and B6022

The B6022 is a short residential and industrial road in Sutton in Ashfield, Nottinghamshire, connecting the A38 to the B6139.

Starting from the A38 end, at a signalised junction, the road heads east and is mainly residential through the estate of Sutton Junction. The road then crosses the Robin Hood railway line at a level crossing (adjacent to the former Sutton Junction railway station), before meeting the B6021 at a mini roundabout. The road then passes through an area of light industry, and becomes a 60 mph NSL road, before terminating at the B6139 Coxmoor Road at a signalised crossroads. The road ahead has never been classified, and has now become a dead end owing to the construction of the A617 in 2004.

History

Originally the B6022 began at a roundabout with the A615 (now B6023), at the west end of Devonshire Square: the site of today's Sutton Bus Station. The route ran along Forest Street and met Outram Street at Portland Square. In the 1990s Portland Square was pedestrianised and Europe's largest sundial was erected where the B6022 would have once run. The route then continued along Station Road until it came to its current starting-point on the A38 Sutton bypass. Station Road is very aptly named as it connects the sites of three out of the four railway stations which once served Sutton. (The modern Sutton Parkway station, opened in 1995, is not, however, on Station Road!)

The B6022 originally ended at the point where it now meets the B6021, that is to say, 500 yards short of its current terminus. (The B6021 at that time then followed a 100-yard-long section of the B6022's current alignment before turning left to continue along Hamilton Road.)
