Thomas Telford's Holyhead Road was an attempt to improve communications between London and Ireland. It is commonly supposed that the Holyhead Road followed the modern A5, but this was not the case, instead taking what is now A45, A41 and A464 so as to take in the major industrial cities of Coventry, Birmingham and Wolverhampton rather than the less populated A5 route.
