The road's southeastern terminus is located at the T-intersection with the Great Western Highway / Parramatta Road in Granville; with the road's northwestern terminus at the junction of the Cumberland Highway and Windsor Road in Northmead. The road passes through six large interchanges, with the Great Western Highway, the M4 Western Motorway, Victoria Road, Kissing Point Road, Pennant Hills Road, and Windsor Road.

The road was completed in 1979 and named in honour of James Ruse, a convict who was given land in the Parramatta district, which he successfully developed into the colony's first sustainable farm. The original Experiment Farm Cottage still exists on Ruse Street, Parramatta.
