|Route outline (key)|
The B608x routes are all to the north-east of Sheffield city centre or leading along routes in that direction.
The B6080 can be seen as an extension of the old B-road inner ring road: B6070, B6071, B6080, despite the fact the road is unchanged since 1922. It starts at traffic lights at a junction with the A6135 Burngreave Road and then heads east along Gower Street and Sutherland Street to cross both halves of the A6109 and end on the A6178 Attercliffe Road.
However, there is some confusion as to whether the southern section of Sutherland Street is the B6080, or part of the one-way system forming the junction of the A6109/A6178. It is even uncertain whether it should be A6109 or A6178; different maps disagree and street signs are ambiguous.
At one time the B6080 may have continued on to Leveson Street but this is now the northernmost section of the B6071.
