The road eastbound point is at the Trinity Street junction with the A62 at Huddersfield's town centre ring road (Castlegate).

The A640 links both Rochdale and Huddersfield with the M62 Motorway with the road meeting the Motorway's junction 21 (Milnrow for Rochdale) and junction 23 (Outlane for Huddersfield).

The road is often closed during periods of snow due to its remote nature over the Pennine hills. This cuts off the non-motorway route between Huddersfield and Manchester.

The road is known as New Hey Road between Marsh, in Huddersfield and the West Yorkshire boundary. In Greater Manchester, the A640 road names include Huddersfield Road, Rochdale Road and Milnrow Road.
