The A5047 is the main road into the centre of Liverpool from the east and the M62.

At the Liverpool end, the A5047 starts at the complicated junction at the north end of Lime Street. It heads east along London Road. This was originally the A57 but that has now been rerouted, explaining why London Road turns off the A5047 and not the other way round. The A5047 continues along Pembroke Place and ends up on Edge Lane which becomes a dual carriageway.

At the east end of Edge Lane, the A5080 continues straight on to meet the M62 and the A5047 turns left at a set of traffic lights onto St Oswald's Street to meet the A57, which has been running parallel for the entire distance.

Although the 1922 Road Lists show the A5047 as unchanged from its present route (except along London Road), virtually the whole of the road was renumbered A5080 at some time, leaving only the St Oswald's Street section as A5047. The road was given its original number back in the 1980s.
