Merton Road

The A5057 is a short urban A-road in Bootle.

It starts on the A565 near the docks. According to the Ordnance Survey, it heads east along both Strand Road and Church Gardens (although other maps claim just the former), before the two branches join to form Merton Road. It runs the full length of Merton Road before crossing the A5090 at a roundabout and then ending soon afterwards at a half-roundabout on the A5058.


The A5057 in 1923

In 1922, the A5057 both started and ended further east. It started on the A564 (now A567) and headed east along its current route and beyond, to end on the A59 in Walton. The A5058 was later extended west, taking over the original eastern end of the A5057.

The current western end of the A5057 was originally two different B-roads (the B5191 Strand Road and the B5190 which ran along that part of Merton Road east of the present northern end of the B5190) and an unclassified road connecting the two. The A5057 was extended west to meet the A565 along these roads, making the entire length of Merton Road classified for the first time. Following this extension, the western end of the A5057 was on the A5036 Regent Road; when this was closed to through traffic (it is now within the dockyard) the road was cut back to the A565.
