|Route outline (key)|
The B6029 formed a northern bypass of Mansfield.
It started on the B6021 between Skegby and Sutton Forest Side and headed northeast to Bull Farm, then east via Mansfield Woodhouse to end on the A60 at Whinny Hill. The road was later rerouted slightly through Mansfield Woodhouse to run along Station Street and the High Street instead of Priory Road and Welbeck Road.
The B6029 number became redundant in the early 1970s as part of a large renumbering scheme in the area. It became A6075 for its entire length, reverting to its original line through Mansfield Woodhouse. The original western end was later bypassed.
When the Mansfield Ashfield Regeneration Route was completed in 2004 the western section, as it had become, was redesignated as part of the A617.
