The former route went through Dishforth, to the end: Northallerton, 54°20′11″N 1°26′02″W. Kirkhamgate Interchange is an unbuilt junction on the M1 west of Kirkhamgate-Pudsey motorway was to leave here linking with either the M, the Pudsey-Dishforth motorway, or both.

The Kirkhamgate-Dishforth scheme was to form a western bypass of Leeds, taking the M1 past the city. The A number was an alternative number for the west-of-Leeds bypass. The Design Manual for Roads and Bridges (DMRB) is a series of 15 volumes that provide standards, advice notes and other documents relating to the design, assessment and operation of trunk roads, including motorways in the United Kingdom, and, with some amendments, the Republic of also forms the basis of the road design standards used in many other countries.

Transport Scotland, as trunk road authority, has responsibilities for the safety of the public travelling on trunk roads and motorways in Scotland.
