|Route outline (key)|
The B608x routes all lie to the north-east of Sheffield city centre or follow routes leaving the city in that direction.
The B6082 is a loop off the A6135. It starts on Spital Hill and heads northeast along Carlisle Street – or at least that is what the maps say. In practice Carlisle Street and Spital Hill are no longer connected to each other except on foot and so the actual road starts at a turning circle next to Tesco.
Heading north-east the B6082 meets its first classified road, the B6080, at a roundabout and then continues through the largely industrial streets to reach traffic lights on the A6102 Upwell Street. This is the original northern end of the B6082 but it was extended around 1935. The road thus continues now via Holywell Road and Tyler Street to pass a back entrance to Meadowhall Interchange. The next right turn, at traffic lights, leads along an unclassified road to the shopping centre and the M1 but the B6082 continues parallel to the railway line along Ecclesfield Road through Wooley Wood to meet the B6086. Until the 2000s our road ended there but things have now changed so that the B6082 now continues along Green Lane, finishing with a junction with the A6135 The Common: this time the two roads do actually connect.
