|Route outline (key)|
The B6390 is a short link road in Audenshaw. It was originally unclassified but presumably gained its number in the mid-1920s.
Starting at traffic lights on the A635 Manchester Road the road heads east along the residential Audenshaw Road and soon bears right to go over the railway line from Manchester to Guide Bridge. After traffic lights serving a modern housing development the road goes over the M60 and then skirts the northern edge of the Audenshaw Reservoirs; the left-hand side of the road remains built-up.
We then go under a freight-only railway line and cross a roundabout on the edge of a park. After going back over the Guide Bridge line the road bears left to end at traffic lights on the A6140. Before that road was built (to provide access to M60 J23) the B6390 continued to the right to end on the A6017 by St Stephen's Church.
