|Route outline (key)|
The A1029 runs along the eastern edge of Scunthorpe town centre adjacent to the steelworks.
Starting at a roundabout on the A1077 in Crosby Warren the road heads south, part rural, part industrial. There is a mini-roundabout with an unclassified road after which the road reaches another roundabout on the northern edge of the urban area. Here the road turns left and skirts the eastern edge of the town centre, passing through a retail park. Some older buildings are visible, such as the parish church on the right and a windmill on the left by the following set of traffic lights.
After passing over the Doncaster to Grimsby railway line the road becomes rural/industrial once more. The entire left side of the road is taken up by the steelworks whilst the other side changes between grassed areas, warehouses, and small businesses. Presently another roundabout is reached where the road ends on the A18 by a retail park.
The route's original northern terminus had been at an end-to-end junction with the A159 in the centre of town. The A1029 was extended north along what had previously been a part of the A1077 when the latter road was rerouted to create a northern bypass.
