Railway bridges on the A58 (former B6158) Gelderd Road

The B6158 is described in the 1922 Road Lists as Link in Leeds.

Finding the road is difficult as the number does not seem to appear on any maps. However, an unnumbered Class II road does appear in the vicinity of Holbeck station, partly hidden under the railway lines. This is the most likely candidate to be the B6158.

The road started on the B6154 Wellington Road and headed south along Gelderd Road under the railway lines heading west from Leeds. It ended on the A58 Whitehall Road, with the A62 continuing along the remainder of Gelderd Road.

Owing to the short length of the road it is not known how long the number lasted but certainly the road is shown with Class II status in the 1970s. Since then, road improvements have made the B6158 number redundant. The road is now part of the A58. Furthermore, the Armley Gyratory has destroyed the northern section of the road, although the exit from the junction onto the southbound A58 uses the B6158's original railway bridges.
