Route

The A5036 is an urban A-road having two main sections: from Switch Island to Bootle and from Bootle along the Mersey to Liverpool.

The A5036 starts at Switch Island at Netherton, near Aintree, seemingly forcing the A59 to TOTSO. It heads southwest as a dual carriageway through Litherland to Seaforth. There are several sets of traffic lights and one large roundabout, which is unexpected. The road apparently ends in Seaforth on the A565, which is grade-separated for this junction only.

Regent Road, Sandhills, Liverpool

However, if you head south to Bootle, you will find the A5036 reappears one block closer to the Mersey by the Langton Dock - although confusingly it does not reappear on the A565 but rather at the end of the A5058. The A5036 heads south along the docks into Liverpool, where it regains primary and dual-carriageway status by the Princes Dock, taking it from the A5052. It then forms the main north/south route west of the city centre and east of the River Mersey. The docks exit from the Queensway Tunnel is met just before passing the Three Graces.

By the Wapping Dock, the A5036 has to TOTSO (ahead is the A562) to become a single-carriageway non-primary route once again. It continues along the dockside to end without ceremony by Brunswick station. The road straight ahead is unclassified.

History

The convoluted route of the A5036 can be explained by the fact that it originally only went from Bootle to Brunswick (although still ended on an unclassified road). It started on the A565 in Bootle and headed south along Regent Road. This section was declassified in the 1990s.

The section between Switch Island and Seaforth was originally A567. For some reason it was renumbered A5036 when it was upgraded in the 1970s.
