B6228 Link in Chorley
Leeds & Liverpool Canal

The B6228 is a link road in the Lancashire town of Chorley.

Originally it started on the A6 Bolton Street and headed east along Standish Street. However, the A6 has now been moved onto the current relief road so Standish Street has been declassified whilst the B6228 starts at a roundabout on the new road and heads east along Lyons Lane (which was always numbered B6228). It crosses the railway line straight away, after which the road becomes residential.

At the far end of Lyons Lane the road bends to the left and continues north along Eaves Lane, which is also largely residential. Presently a roundabout is reached. This was the original northern end of the B6228 where it ended on the A674. Now, however, that road runs further north to access M61 J8 and so the B6228 continues ahead (the road to the left is now the B6229).

The road soon goes over the M61 and then the Leeds & Liverpool Canal immediately afterwards. The pre-motorway canal bridge is still in existence just to the north but now goes nowhere in particular. The B6228 now appears more rural, although it never leaves the houses behind for any great distance. It passes a housing estate before ending at traffic lights on the current route of the A674.
