Sheffield in 1923

The B6070 is a short link road in Sheffield city centre with a complicated history.

Originally the road started on the now-unclassified A616 Infirmary Road in Philadelphia and ran anticlockwise around the city centre along St Philip's Road, Hanover Street, St Mary's Road and Granville Road to end back on the A616 City Road. The B6070 was later extended clockwise along Rutland Road to end on the A6135 Burngreave Road.

City Road

Having grown to its full length, the road then started to disappear. By the 1970s St Mary's Road had become part of the A625 and then the road from here to Infirmary Road was upgraded and slightly rerouted to form part of the Class I ring road, originally numbered as the A6134 until being renumbered as the A61 when the Penistone Road/Hoyle Street junction was upgraded in the 1990s. This left two non-connected roads numbered B6070. The northern road, Rutland Road, has been renumbered B6075. The southern one, Granville Road, has swapped numbers with the A6135 to leave the current route of the B6070.

As such, the current northern end of the B6070 is at the Park Square junction. It heads southeast along Duke Street and part of City Road before ending at traffic lights where the A6175 has to TOTSO.
