The A643 Ingram Distributor in Leeds

In Leeds, the road is a dual carriageway that links the Armley Gyratory roundabout with the M621 motorway at junction 2. This part of the A643 is known as the Ingram Distributor. It is a vital road artery to the city as it links the city centre with the Motorway. If accidents happen there, then this could cause traffic congestion around the city.[1]

The Leeds United AFC football stadium in Beeston is named after the road part of the A643 that passes it, Elland Road. This road is so called because the A643 originally ended in town of Elland near Halifax.

The A643 road goes over the River Calder in Brighouse as Rastrick Bridge.
