The B679 is a short link road in the Nottinghamshire town of West Bridgford.
It starts at traffic lights to the south of County Hall, at a junction with the A60 and A606. It then heads west along Wilford Lane, running close to the River Trent for the first short section.
Most of the road seems semi-rural but the road soon enters Wilford, which is much more built-up. The B680 is crossed at traffic lights before the road ends on a mini-roundabout from where a slip road heads left to reach the southbound A52. The road ahead is officially numbered A453 but at this point is essentially part of the same GSJ.
Originally the B679 continued ahead from this point through Clifton, Gotham and Kingston on Soar to end on the A6 in Kegworth.
In 1967, with the construction of the M1, the entire B679 was bypassed and upgraded to Class I status as a link to the motorway and so it was numbered A648 until 1978. In that year the A453 was rerouted to take over most of the A648. The easternmost section did not become part of the A453 and was given its original number, B679, back, giving the road its current route.
