The Sheffield Parkway is a major dual carriageway which runs between the City of Sheffield and junction 33 of the M1 in South Yorkshire, England. The 5.5-mile (8.9 km) road was opened in 1974.

RouteEdit

The route runs to the east of the City, connecting Park Square in the city centre with the inner ring road, outer ring road and out to the M1 motorway at junction 33. It passes the districts of the city council which are former villages: Wybourn, Darnall and Handsworth and the large village of Catcliffe, at which a slip road connects to Sheffield Business Park and the Advanced Manufacturing Park (AMP). Many businesses and Sheffield attractions are within sight of The Parkway as it is known in South Yorkshire, and it can become highly congested. For approximately 2.5 miles (4.0 km) the road forms part of the A57; the rest is part of the A630.
