Description:
The A172 is a major road in North Yorkshire, England. It runs from Ingleby Arncliffe to Middlesbrough.

Marton Road

Marton Road is that part of the length of the A172 that links Middlesbrough to Stokesley.

Marton Road itself runs from the centre of Middlesbrough, starting at around the site of the old St. John's Church and runs to the site of the Southern Cross public house. From this point on, the A172 changes its name to Dixon's Bank, before becoming Stokesley Road as it skirts Nunthorpe to its left.

Along its route the road passes several sites of local interest, including the James Cook University Hospital, Stewart Park and the Marton Cricket Club

The road is also 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 2 hours 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.
