Etruria Road

A short, urban A-road, the A5010 is surprisingly important as it forms part of the main signposted route into Stoke-on-Trent City Centre from the north. It is called Etruria Road for most of its length.

It starts on the A5006 in Hanley where it is called Trinity Street. Historically, the A5010 started at the top of the hill on the A50 Stafford Street but was shortened slightly when the ring road was built and the A50 moved out of the centre of town.

After passing the telephone exchange, the A5010 crosses the old Potteries Loop Line, of which very little survives at this point, where its street name changes to Etruria Road. It levels out and passes an edge-of-town retail park, with two sets of traffic lights.

At the second set of traffic lights, the A5010 meets the Potteries Way ring road, which is the A5008 at this point. The ring road was extended here in November 2010 and the A5010 was improved beyond here as part of the work.

The final section of the A5010 is both primary and dual carriageway. It ends at a roundabout at a GSJ on the A53, which continues the street name Etruria Road to the A500 and beyond into Newcastle.
