|Route outline (key)|
The B6241, as originally allocated, ran from HM Prison on Ribbleton Road, Preston, along the full length of Deepdale Road to Watling Street Road in Fulwood. The entire road was renumbered as part of the A6063 (a reused number from a now-unclassified road in Mellor Brook) in the 1980s.
The road number was later reused for the Northern Preston Ring Road constructed in the late 1980s and early 1990s. The northern section of the original B6241, now called Sir Tom Finney Way, was taken over by this route even though the number now serves a completely different purpose.
