Darlington is a town and Primary Destination in County Durham.

An inner ring road was planned in the 1960's and the eastern section from Freemans Place Roundabout to Feethams Roundabout was the first to open in 1969. The junctions on this section have changed in the intervening years. Freemans Place Roundabout and Parkgate Roundabout were reduced in size in the late 1970's. Parkgate Roundabout was changed again to a signal controlled staggered crossroads in 2014. The southeast corner of Feethams Roundabout also changed when the section towards Grange Road Roundabout was built. The northwest section also opened around the same time. The final stage was to be the western section between Bondgate and Grange Road but this was never built and there are currently no plans to do so.

In 2012/2013 a masterplan for the town centre proposed altering the route of the northern section and converting all the roundabouts to signalised junctions to reduce land take. It is not known is these proposals are still being pursued.
