|Route outline (key)|
The A5053 is the dual-carriageway relief road running to the north of Liverpool city centre.
It starts as the eastwards extension of the A5052, at a crossroads with the A565. It heads more-or-less due east, crossing the A5038 half way. It ends on the A59 opposite John Moores University at a junction that seems to be an at-grade version of a directional T GSJ.
Originally, the A5053 only consisted of the half west of the A5038. It (and Leeds Street) was extended east in the 1980s.
