The road begins in Belle Isle and ends in Colton at junction 46 of the
M1 motorway. It begins in Belle Isle as a un-numbered road and goes through to Beeston. It is then designated the A6110 between Beeston and Bramley a dual carriageway, before running concurrently with the Stanningley By-Pass A647 also a dual carriageway but with grade separated junctions.
