The A6182 is a dual carriageway in Doncaster that runs west and north from Doncaster Sheffield Airport to junction 3 of the M18 and then on to Doncaster town centre.

The road is named "White Rose Way" north of the M18, and "Great Yorkshire Way" south of the M18.

The road's purpose is to link the town centre with the M18, from which drivers can reach the A1 and M1, and Doncaster Sheffield Airport.

21st century extensions[edit]

The upgrade of the part of the road from Lakeside Village Outlet to the M18 to dual carriageway was completed in June 2013.

The FARRRS[2] project extends the route from M18 to Doncaster Sheffield Airport. Phase 1 opened between the M18 and Parrot's Corner in February 2016.[3] Work on the second and final phase connecting the A638 and the airport began in June 2017[4] and was completed in June 2018.[5]

Industrial estates[edit]

Due to the nature of the road, a large number of industrial estates line the A6182, as well as the Lakeside Village and the main Royal Mail sorting office for Doncaster and most of East Yorkshire. British Telecom, Royal Bank of Scotland, Tesco Insurance and Direct Line possess large call centres situated just off the road. There is a new iPort near Rossington.
