A5069 Westhoughton - Chequerbent
The former A5069 (now A58) Park Road

The A5069 was allocated to Park Road, Westhoughton, near Bolton, linking the A58 to the A6.

In 1970, the M61 was extended from Horwich to meet the then-M62 and this required some fundamental changes to traffic patterns around the new motorway.

In particular, the A58 was severed by the motorway, with a new link from Hunger Hill to Chequerbent known as Syndale Way being constructed (with a view to eventually linking in with the A579 Atherleigh Way and hence the A580). This required the re-routing of the A58 via Park Road and the eventual construction of a new inner relief road in Westhoughton known as Cricketers Way, which opened later, in the 1980s.

Traffic on this section is very heavy due to a combination of factors, namely the missing section of the M58 and the lack of direct connectivity with the A579. No solid proposals to remedy these gaps have been put forward in recent years.
