Route outline (key)
A6110 Leeds Outer Ring Road

The A6110 forms the south-western arm of the Leeds Outer Ring Road.

Route

The road starts at a fork GSJ on the A653 by the White Rose Shopping Centre. The road heads north along a dual-carriageway, with houses to the right, and soon meets a roundabout which gives access to the shopping centre and also a spur of the A6110 heading east to return to the A653, providing movements that did not exist at the fork. The road continues north into an industrial estate and meets the A643 at the next roundabout. There's a short multiplex with the A6110 number dominant until the A643 turns off at traffic lights, which also serve a cemetery.

The next roundabout forms J1 of the M621, after which the road continues north and crosses the A62 at traffic lights. We now bear to the left to go under the Leeds to Huddersfield railway line after which the road is lined with offices. There's a roundabout to serve them followed by another where we cross the A58.

Ring Road

We continue on northwestwards and become residential once more as we skirt the suburb of Farnley. A few sets of traffic lights and the occasional roundabout give access to the suburb. Presently we cross the B6154 at a roundabout before we continue on to another GSJ, where we end at west-facing sliproads providing access to/from the A647. The A6110 used to end on the original line of that road, Stanningley Road in Swinnow, although the A647 bypass has taken over most of this route.


Timeline

Location Historic County Date Distance Notes Location Map
Swinnow Road, Bramley to Whitehall Road, Lower Wortley Yorkshire 1924 2.5 miles (4 km) Ring Road Bramley, Farnley and Low Wortley. Reported as finished or nearing completion by the 21 August 1924 Yorkshire Post.
SABRE • Google • geo
Whitehall Road, Lower Wortley to Gelderd Road Yorkshire 1932 0.6 miles (1 km) Ring Road Low Wortley. Opened on 25 January 1932 per the Yorkshire Evening Post of that day. It completed the 6.5 mile section from Sinnow Lane, Stanningley to Sharp Lane, Middleton.

Gelderd Road to Elland Road Yorkshire 1926 0.5 miles (0.8 km) Ring Road Beeston. Yorkshire Evening Post reported on 31 May 1926 about charabanc tours including the new section to Gelderd Road. Tenders were invited on 4 August 1926 for paving and kerbing for this section. Tarmacadamising was not mentioned so the carriageway must have been surfaced. It had still been described as under construction in the 28 October 1925 Leeds Mercury. It is unclear if it opened as A6110 since it was then an isolated section of the Ring Road.

Elland Road to Dewsbury Road Yorkshire 1931 0.9 miles (1.4 km) Ring Road Churwell. Leeds Mercury of 6 April 1931 reported an address on the section. There was a tender invite advert for wrought iron unclimbable fencing for the section on 12 May 1931. It had been described as well on the way to completion in the Yorkshire Post of 7 June 1930. It may have opened in 1930. It also included Millshaw Road as part of a large triangular intersection with Dewsbury Road. The Ring Road section here was later renumbered A635.
