|Route outline (key)|
Identified from large scale Ordnance Survey mapping, the B6440 was shown as an unnumbered B-road on many OS One Inch maps. It followed Market Street in central Newcastle upon Tyne, starting on the A6086, and gradually converging with the A696, crossing two further A roads in its very short length.
The road was originally numbered B1306, gaining this number when the A1 was rerouted over the new Tyne Bridge and so putting the road in the 6-zone. Following rebuilding in this part of the city, the road is now unclassified, as are all of the other former A and B roads that it met. The eastern end, however, now lies underneath the A167(M).
