Route

Bradway Road heading into Bradway, Sheffield

The B6054 is a largely rural B-road on the edge of the Sheffield urban area.

The road begins at the busy Meadowhead roundabout in south-west Sheffield, which serves the A61 and A6102 Ring Road. It begins in a 40mph zone as it runs between two housing estates in an open area. We can make swift progress, albeit interrupted by a roundabout, and 50mph is easily possible and safe. This then ends as we enter the suburb of Bradway where we drop to a 30 zone. We pass some shops on our right and the road is narrower here. Then we get to a mini-roundabout where we turn left to continue towards Holmesfield, and we change to NSL, although 40mph is about as fast as you can go because this section is twisty.

We skirt the edge of Dronfield Woodhouse where the speed limit drops to 30mph and we meet the B6056, before entering our last main residential area on the route, Holmesfield. We get to another mini roundabout, where we head straight on and into quite a narrow section before entering NSL and heading for the Owler Bar sausage/roundabout, to meet the A621 and B6051. We head round a few bends before passing the Moorlands pub (great carvery there!) and heading onto the roundabout. We head back on ourselves and then make a sharp left off the roundabout. Then we climb up onto a fast section where 60+ is easily achievable, before terminating on the moors on the A625.

History

Originally the B6054 was much longer but it has been cut back at both ends.

In 1922 the eastern end of the road was on the A616 (now A6135) at Highlane, after which the road headed northwest to Gleadless before continuing southwest to Norton and rejoining its current route (although the 40 zone at the beginning of the current road is a bypass of the original route through Greenhill).

At the western end the B6054 originally ended on the A622 (now B6001) in Calver. It was cut back to Totley Moor in 1999 when the A625 was rerouted over this section.

In the 1970s the entire route between Gleadless and Owler Bar was renumbered A6102, leaving the road with just its two ends and a long multiplex in the middle. Following the upgrade of the part east of the A61 the part to the west became the B6054 once again. Finally the multiplex was removed as the original eastern end of the B6054 became an extension of the B6388.
