The road begins at the Armley Gyratory and goes via Armley, by-passes Stanningley and Pudsey, then onwards via Thornbury and then to the edge of Bradford city centre.

The road then becomes part of the Bradford's Inner Ring Road (Croft Street) before heading through Great Horton and up to Queensbury (1,150 feet (350 m) above sea level) before heading down hill via Boothtown to Halifax town centre.
