From the Wikipedia page 
Burdett Road is part of the North and East London Red route system and was the site of Burdett Road Station, closed in 1941.
After crossing the junction with Bow Road and Mile End Road the remaining distance is called Burdett Road. It forms the western boundary of the Lansbury Estate and ceases to form the boundary of Mile End Park after passing Mile End Stadium and passing under the London, Tilbury and Southend Railway. Here a crossroads is formed with St Pauls Way (B140). The road then passes over Limehouse Cut before terminating at a junction with the A13 and the West India Dock Road.
It is referenced in the song "Mile End" by Pulp, featured in the 1996 film Trainspotting.
