|Route outline (key)|
Starting on the A61 Granville Square the road headed clockwise westwards along St. Mary's Road, crossing the A621 Bramall Lane roundabout, then the A625 Moore Street roundabout, then headed uphill northwards around the city centre along Hanover Way. After crossing the A57 at Brook Hill it bore round to the right along Netherthorpe Road before squeezing through a narrow section of single carriageway along Hoyle Street to end on the A61 Shalesmoor at what was then a gyratory system around St. Philip's churchyard.
Although the whole of the above route is currently dual-carriageway the A6134 was not built as such. It appears to have been gradually dualled from the A625 northwards, with the northern end the final section to gain the central reservation. It was finally renumbered as the A61 in the 1990s when Penistone Road was dualled through to Shalesmoor and Hoyle Street.
Approaching the Upper Hanover Street section from Glossop Road, city-bound, there is still a sign for "Ring Road (A6134)" which was a like-for-like replacement of a far older sign well after the road number was retired.
