A630

Post by roadphotos » Thu Sep 12, 2019 15:40

I thought it was worth asking a question about the A630 to see if anyone has the answer. Most maps show the part of the A630 west of the A1(M) junction 36 as being a Primary Route (coloured green) and the section of the A630 east of the A1(M) towards Doncaster as a Non Primary Route (coloured red) but all of the signs at the A1(M) junction 36 seem to suggest the opposite. The A630 from the A1(M) towards Conisbrough and Rotherham has Non Primary Route signage (white signs) and the A630 east from the A1(M) towards Doncaster has green Primary Route signs. All of the signs seem to say the opposite of how the A630 is shown on most maps. All of the A630 from Rotherham to the A1(M) at junction 36 has white Non Primary Route signs. Does anyone have any more information on this.

Given that both Rotherham and Doncaster are primary destinations I would have expected the A630 to be a primary road but perhaps the assumption is that since using the M18/M1 is usually faster that is considered primary.

Checks extremely old (17/12/1999) Y+H primary route map PDF

The A630 is primary from Sheffield to the M1 at J33, then non-primary to the A1(M) at Warmsworth, then primary through Doncaster to M18 J4.

Whether that remains the case is another matter of course...
Patience is not a virtue - it's a concept invented by the dozy beggars who are unable to think quickly enough.

The current AA road atlases show the A630 between Sheffield and Doncaster as described above. Although Rotherham is a primary destination, no primary routes pass through the town itself.
