|Route outline (key)|
The A5042 was a north-south road on the western side of Liverpool city centre.
It started on the northern edge of the A5041 Canning Place (which was originally a square) and headed north along South Castle Street, both of which now no longer exist. After reaching the A5039 Derby Square the road continued along Castle Street to end on the A57 Dale Street opposite the town hall.
South of Derby Square the ex-A5042 is now buried under the law courts and Chavasse Park. Castle Street now seems to be part of the A5039.
