West Derby Road

The A5049 is a largely dual-carriageway route through the eastern suburbs of Liverpool, ending on the A5058 ring road.

The road originally started on the A57 near St George's Hall in the city centre. However, the western end of the road has now been taken over by the A580 and so the A5049 starts at traffic lights where that road TOTSOs over half a mile to the east. The road continues east, initially S2 but soon becomes dual.

The A5089 is met at traffic lights, after which the road passes to the north of Newsham Park, before going under a bridge carrying a freight-only railway line. A roundabout is reached shortly afterwards. West Derby Road continues straight on here and was the original route of the A5049. However, the A5049 now turns left along Muirhead Avenue, a dual carriageway with a remarkably wide central reservation. It ends at a set of traffic lights on the A5058, although Muirhead Avenue continues straight on, eventually petering out in Croxteth
