|Route outline (key)|
The B607x routes all belong to a group running around or leading to and from Sheffield city centre.
Most current mapping indicates that the B6073 now starts at Sheaf Square Roundabout (where it meets the A61, A57 and B6070) and progresses north along Exchange Place, the original line of the A61, later A6135. It then turns off along Furnival Road, at the point that used to be the start of the B6073 before the A61 was moved to Derek Dooley Way, the northern section of the Inner Ring Road.
The road crosses the A61 Derek Dooley Way at a point where some current mapping shows to be the start of the B6073 and continues along the rest of Furnival Road, going through a tunnel under the old Victoria station before joining Effingham Street and then Effingham Road. Effingham Road passes the unclassified Leveson Street, which may once have been the southern end of the B6080, then passes the B6071 Bernard Road. Some maps show that the B6073 ends here and the road ahead is the B6071 but that would give that road a spur - and certainly the original number of the road ahead is B6073. Therefore the B6073 ends with Stevenson Road forming a one-way junction with the A6178 (formerly A57) Attercliffe Road.
