The A5014 is a short A-road to the southwest of Manchester city centre. The road runs parallel to the A56 and indeed its northern section was part of that road for many years.

The road starts at traffic lights on the A56 just to the south of Cornbrook metrolink station where that road moved onto the D2 Bridgewater Way. This junction is more complicated than it needs to be as westbound A56 traffic may not turn right at the main set of lights, so needs to turn left onto the A5014 then double back on itself.

The A5014 initially heads southwest along Chester Road. This was obviously once residential but some houses have been demolished to leave open space whereas others are now offices. The B5224 turns left opposite the former Duckworth's building and the road continues on past light industry to traffic lights on the A5067. There's a short multiplex to the next set of lights where the A5067 turns right, taking the ex-A56 with it.

Stretford Town Hall

The A5014 continues ahead, now on the former B5410. It passes the Trafford Bar metrolink station immediately before continuing along Talbot Road, which is lined with several tall office blocks. Warwick Road is crossed at traffic lights and the road then skirts the Old Trafford cricket ground, with Stretford Town Hall on the other side of the roa. The road now becomes residential and it continues through the suburb of Gorse Hill before ending at traffic lights back on the A56.
