|Route outline (key)|
The B6204 is a short route of two parts in Bolton town centre, separated by a pedestrian zone.
The first section starts at a signalised junction on the B6205 St George's Road and heads south along Knowsley Street. After a matter of yards, the road becomes one way, with traffic only able to head north (but with a contra-flow southbound bus lane).
This section of the B6204 suddenly and bizarrely ends on a bend outside the town centre branch of McDonalds, where the road suddenly turns westward and becomes a spur of the A676! Why this and the A676 spur are actually still numbered is anybody's guess...
The second part of the B6204 starts at the traffic-light junction with the A6172 Great Moor Street, at the southern end of the pedestrianised shopping zone, which links it to the northern half of the road and was once numbered B6204. Again, this is a one-way street heading southwards along Newport Street past over a striking arched bridge and past Bolton Interchange to a signalised crossroads with the A579 Trinity Street.
