|Route outline (key)|
The A5045 is a short A-road to the west of Liverpool city centre. At one time it provided a route to the city's ferry terminal.
In its fullest extent the road started on the A5036 The Strand at the western end of the A5039 James Street. It headed west along Mann Island towards the River Mersey, then turned north and ran between the river and the Three Graces. It ended on the A5046 St Nicholas Place by the now-gone Riverside station.
The station is now gone and the ferry terminal now only serves the other side of the Mersey, so it would be expected that the A5045 number is no more. However, this is not the case. Mann Island (but not the section along the waterfront) still retains the A5045 number, thus giving the Museum of Liverpool its very own A-road.
