|Route outline (key)|
Motorway linking M1, A1(M) and M62 in southern Yorkshire. The section from the M1 to Junction 2 can be regarded as a better route than heading up to Leeds on the M1 for traffic wishing to head for the North East. The road is heavily used by lorries heading to the ports of Grimsby and Hull from the south. It is D3M from the M1 to Junction 2, then D2M from junction 2 to 5, where it becomes D3M again.
