|Route outline (key)|
The A5066 is an urban A-road in Salford.
It starts at traffic lights on the A5063 in Ordsall and heads east across the tram tracks, then northeast to pass Ordsall Hall. The route TOTSOs at its junction with the B5461. This is explained by the fact that the through road used to be the A5064 and the A5066 originally started here. The road then crosses the A57 and two wide railway lines to meet the A6 at the west end of Chapel Street.
After crossing the A6 at a signalized staggered junction, the A5066 roughly follows a loop of the River Irwell to meet the A6041 at a set of traffic lights. The A5066 TOTSOs left here and crosses the Irwell at Broughton Bridge to go through Lower Broughton and reach its terminus on the A576 in Higher Broughton.
