B6205 Link in Bolton
Heading west along St George's Road

The B6205 is a short urban road on the north side of Bolton town centre.

The road starts off at a light-controlled crossroads with the A676, where that road TOTSOs and the B6206 also starts. The single-carriageway road heads westwards for a short distance along Bow Street to a signalised T-junction. In 1922 this was all there was of the B6205 – it ended there on the A666 – but more recent road improvements in Bolton have extended the road considerably.

The road now turns northwards at this point and, following a short climb, reaches another signalised crossroads, where there occurs that rarity among road junctions: a cannon. Our road turns left, whilst the B6206 comes in from the east and turns northwards. From here, the B6205 runs in a straight line westwards along the original line of the A673. After a short distance, it passes through a light-controlled junction where the B6204 heads off in a southerly direction. The last few hundred metres see the road become one-way eastward with a contraflow bus lane in operation in the westbound direction. At the western end the B6205 ends at a large signalised crossroads, where the other directions are all numbered A673.
