The B6130 is a link road in the eastern suburbs of Blackburn. Originally unclassified, it gained its number around 1935.

The road links the A6077 to the A6119 and is a very busy commuter route, which, when combined with the fact it runs through a 1950s overspill estate, means that it is a hotbed of traffic calming. There are no less than four mini roundabouts, a full sized one, three zebra crossings, three signal-controlled crossings, four pedestrian refuge islands, three speed cameras, and gallons of road markings. For a road that is barely a mile and a half long, that is pretty impressive. Other than that there is very little of interest along Shadsworth Road, other than it runs nearly downhill all the way from the junction with Rothesay Road to the A6119 at Intack, which is more than half of the total route length.

The M65 largely made this road redundant but the arrival of the massive Shadsworth Business Park has brought back all the traffic problems. This road is not fast, and not recommended as a route around the town. Just use the motorway instead.
