|Route outline (key)|
The A5040 is a short A-road in Liverpool city centre.
With the pedestrianisation of the city centre, the former route of the A5040 was cut back considerably - its 1922 route crossed the centre. Originally, the A5040 started on the A561 then headed north along Paradise Street and Whitechapel to reach Victoria Street. It crossed that road at an angle to end on the A57 William Brown Street by the Queensway Tunnel entrance.
