Route outline (key)
B6222 Rochdale - Bury
Towards Rochdale

The B6222 forms a local commuter route between Rochdale and Bury, running parallel to the A58.

The road starts on the western side of Rochdale by turning off the A6060 at a cramped signalised junction and heading west along Bury Road. It also intersects the B6452 at another cramped signalised junction before widening out and gaining a 40 mph speed limit all the way to the metropolitan borough boundary, where it passes Fairfield Hospital.

Eventually the road passes under the M66 at the notorious Ferngrove Estate - a 1930s overspill estate that was supposed to have an at-grade dual carriageway bisecting it but ended up with the motorway passing through on a raised concrete embankment. The result is a very unsightly 'wall' through the middle of the estate with considerable noise intrusion. As a result Ferngrove is not exactly the most sought-after district of Bury.

Before too long the road slams into more signalised junctions and meets the A58 and A56 outside The Rock Shopping Centre. Here the road ends, with through traffic directed ahead onto Peel Way.
