Although it is unclear on the mapping, it may be that it was simply the section between the M54 and A442 that held this number, with the rest of the road up to the A464 as part of the A5. This is possible as the number on the map is as long as the entire named section above. Unfortunately, at this time no further mapping showing the number has yet been found, and so more investigation is required.
