|Route outline (key)|
The B6099 is a short urban road to the west of Barnsley.
The road originally started in the centre of Dodworth, where the A628 turned from Barnsley Road onto Station Road. However, the A628 has been rerouted twice since classification in 1922 and so the B6099 has been extended twice to meet the new route of that road. Firstly the A628 was moved from Barnsley Road onto Mitchelson Avenue, so the B6099 was extended along the eastern section of Station Road (this explains the current B6099 TOTSO on Station Road). More recently, Dodworth has been bypassed completely, so the B6099 has taken over the full length of Station Road – and the level crossing – and now starts at a roundabout on the northern edge of town.
The B6099 continues southeast from Dodworth into Dodworth Bottom and goes over the M1 immediately to the south of junction 37. It then climbs Keresforth Hill Road to end at traffic lights on the A6133.
Originally, however, the A6133 did not exist. The B6099 therefore continued east, skirting the southern edge of Barnsley town centre. After crossing the A61 it ended on the A635, as the A6133 does today.
