This article is about the current A6133 in Barnsley. For the former A6133 in Newark on Trent, see A6133 (Newark).
The A6133 is a semi-useful route through suburban Barnsley. It can provide a reliable alternative for motorists travelling from the M1 and A628 to the A635 towards Doncaster or continuing on the A628 towards Pontefract, rather than using the main A628 through Barnsley town centre which can become congested at peak times. Its entire length is built up as it passes through suburban Barnsley.
It begins west of Barnsley at a traffic-light-controlled junction quite close to junction 37 of the M1 motorway and adjacent to the suburb of Dodworth. From here it sets out an urban S2, with a number of traffic-light-controlled junctions. It then duals to meet the B6099 Keresforth Hill Road from Dodworth, which bridges the M1.
The A6133 then narrows to S2 once more and heads east, through numerous junctions, to reach a traffic-light-controlled junction with the A61 in Worsborough, providing access southbound toward Sheffield and northbound toward Barnsley town centre. The road then descends towards Stairfoot, soon ending at traffic lights where it meets the A635, which continues to the Stairfoot Roundabout and a connection to the A633.
The A6133 was created after the mid-1960s as an upgrade from two Class II roads, taking over part of the B6099 and the entire B6448.
