The A658 is a road in the UK running from Bradford, West Yorkshire (53°47′42″N 1°44′55″W / 53.7949°N 1.7487°W / 53.7949; -1.7487 (A658 road (southwestern end))), to Knaresborough, North Yorkshire (54°00′23″N 1°25′58″W / 54.0065°N 1.4327°W / 54.0065; -1.4327 (A658 road (southwestern end))), passing along the way Leeds Bradford International Airport, where it runs through a tunnel directly under the main runway. The road starts near to the cathedral in Bradford, crossing the A650 almost immediately as it heads north westwards from the city.[1] The A658 originally terminated south of the village of Pannal at the junction with the A61,[2] but was extended when the south Harrogate and Knaresborough bypass was built and the road now ends east of Knaresborough where it meets the A59.
