|Route outline (key)|
The B6186 is an urban B-road to the north of central Salford.
The road starts on the A56 Bury New Road, close to the border with Manchester, and heads west along Upper Camp Street. This road is one-way but becomes two-way at the next set of traffic lights where the A5066 is crossed. Eastbound traffic presumably uses the parallel (but unclassified) Fenney Street.
The road continues along the largely residential Camp Street before crossing the unclassified Lower Broughton Road at traffic lights soon before going over the River Irwell. It then skirts the northern edge of Peel Park, leaving the houses behind.
The B6186 now appears to be going through an industrial estate. It goes over two bridges carrying the railway lines north of Salford Crescent station before bending to the left and ending at traffic lights on the A6 on the edge of the campus of the University of Salford.
