|Route outline (key)|
The A5060 is a short A-road running south of Warrington.
It starts on the A49 on the left bank of the River Mersey and heads vaguely south for just over a mile. To begin with it follows the river although actually this is a 20th-century cut; the natural line of the river, now filled in, followed the gap in the houses to the east - River Road is so-called for a reason. When the Mersey turns away the A5060 crosses a wide bridge over a ditch (the original course of the river, which needed such a bridge) and then a swing bridge over the Manchester Ship Canal. After meeting the B5156 the road bends to the right and ends soon afterwards on the A56 where that road TOTSOs.
