A608 Derby - Annesley

The A608 is a medium-length A-road in the East Midlands.

The road starts at a roundabout with the A61 just north of Derby city centre. After skirting the Meteor Centre Retail Park (on the western side of the A61) it crosses that road via a bridge and heads north-east skirting Oakwood to the north and Breadsall to the south to enter open country. After passing through Morley, it meets the A609 at Smalley Common where that road multiplexes with the A608 to Smalley. There, the A609 turns off to the left and the A608 heads for Heanor where it meets the A6007 at a roundabout.

The A6007 multiplexes with the A608 along the High Street before leaving towards Ilkeston; the A608 heads through Langley Mill before crossing the A610 at a roundabout GSJ and enters Eastwood. Again changing direction, from east to north, the A608 leaves Eastwood and heads through Brinsley where it multiplexes again, this time with the B600 at Underwood. The A608 gives way to the B600 in both directions here, since the B600 was the A613 before the M1 opened.

The M1 is crossed (at junction 27) and a short section of dual carriageway either side of the entrances to Sherwood Park (an industrial estate - the A608 skirts the estate to the south) leads to the end of the route, on the A611 at Annesley.
