Route outline (key)
B6670 Link in Syston
The now-unclassified former B6670 crossing the River Wreake

For a short period in the 1980s/early 1990s, the B6670 was the route of the former A46 through Syston; this has now been declassified, except for the northern end which is part of the A46/A607 GSJ.

The road started to the south of town on the A607 Melton Road and headed north along Fosse Way. The road was therefore residential but avoided the town centre. At the next roundabout the road crossed the B673, now also unclassified. Presently the road went under a low bridge under the Midland Main Line (one of the reasons the road is unclassified today) then continued across the fields and past a flooded sand quarry. The River Wreake was then crossed, after which the road merged into the A46 at a north-facing partial GSJ. The A607 northern bypass did not exist at that time.
