|Route outline (key)|
The A5063 is a busy road in Salford.
It starts on the A6 Crescent at a part-GSJ and heads south along a dual carriageway. This is a bypass - the original A5063 was Cross Lane just to the west. The road crosses Regent Road Roundabout, a hamburger roundabout at the eastern end of the M602, and then reaches a set of traffic lights. Keep straight on for the mainline of the A5063, or turn right onto Broadway which is a spur.
Broadway forms the main route into the Salford Quays development. The A5063 spur turns right at the first roundabout and then right again away from Broadway, along the tram line to end on the A57 in Weaste, with the A5186 on the far side of the crossroads.
Back to the mainline, the A5063 continues south along the dual carriageway to cross the Manchester Ship Canal and reaches the A56 at another hamburger roundabout. Now single-carriageway, the A5063 continues for a short distance beyond before ending on the A5014.
