A172 road (England)
| A19 road
|South end:||Ingleby Arncliffe
Marton Road itself runs from the centre of Middlesbrough, starting at around the site of the old St. John's Church and runs to Marton Crossroads at Ladgate Lane.
The A172 changes its name to Stokesley Road at Marton Crossroads. The road can be used to join the A19 north to Newcastle and Sunderland and south. The road also joins the A174 (at this point called the Parkway) to the coastal towns of Redcar, Saltburn and Whitby.
The road can become notoriously congested and is famous locally for the "Marton Crawl" which happens during peak times. The Marton Crawl can take anything up to 20 minutes to get from Middlesbrough town centre to Marton itself.
There are a number of bus services which operate along part or all of the road. Amongst these are: 27(Marton-Netherfields), 28 (Saltburn), 29 (Stokesley) and 63 (Redcar), which are operated by Arriva.
After bridging the A174 trunk road (the Parkway), the name changes to Dixons Bank.
