The A647 is an A road in West Yorkshire, England that begins in Leeds and ends in Halifax. The road is approximately 18 miles (30 km) long.

The road begins at the Armley Gyratory and goes via Armley, by-passes Stanningley and Pudsey, then onwards via Thornbury and then to the edge of Bradford city centre.

The road then becomes part of the Bradford's Inner Ring Road (Croft Street) before heading through Great Horton and up to Queensbury (350 metres above sea level) before heading down hill via Boothtown to Halifax town centre.

Stanningley bypass

The road is a stretch of dual carriageway in Leeds, West Yorkshire, England. It was built to ease traffic congestion along Stanningley Road, forming part of the Leeds Outer Ring-Road.

It is notable for the fact that it had Britain's first High Occupancy Vehicle Lane (HOV lane).
