|Route outline (key)|
The road starts at a LILO junction on the eastbound A6005 opposite Chilwell School and heads northeast along Bye Pass Road; this road links the bypass to the old road, which is reached at a mini-roundabout. We now continue along High Road. By Central College the tram comes in from the left then runs along our road after the tram stop. We pass another stop then reach traffic lights where the tram continues ahead into Beeston town centre while we bear right onto the relief road.
We follow Middle Street and bear round to the left, meeting the same tram line again. Traffic lights are then met and we enter a one-way loop. In this direction we bear left (the tram continues ahead), then turn right at traffic lights onto High Road to rejoin the original A453. The road becomes two-way at the next set of lights and the B6464 continues ahead. Westbound traffic would bear off here along Humber Road then turn right at the next set of lights back onto Middle Street, which here has a contraflow tram line.
The B6464 continues northeast along Broadgate into the suburbs, ending at a light-controlled junction with the A6464 on the edge of the campus of the University of Nottingham. When it first came into being, the B6464 ended here on the A453 but by the 1950s that road had been moved and so our road had been extended in both directions along Woodside Road. To the right it quickly reached the new line of the A453 whilst the road to the left was a new link through the suburb of Lenton Abbey to a terminus on the A52. This final section was upgraded in the early 1980s, the B6464 becoming the A6464.
