|Route outline (key)|
Initially the A5077 was given the previously unclassified southern section of the High Street. Starting on Carter Street, the original A518, the road headed north to meet Bradley Street, the original A50, from where the A50 continued ahead along the High Street.
When the A50 Uttoxeter northern bypass was built, the road through the centre of Uttoxeter was renumbered. The section in the Derby direction became an extension of the A518 whereas the (longer) remainder, in the Stoke-on-Trent direction was renumbered as an extension of the A5077. Bradley Street was downgraded.
The A5077 has now become part of an extended A522, which became possible with the building of the dual-carriageway section of A50 to the west of Uttoxeter. However, that road follows Bradley Street once more and so the original section of the A5077 to the south is now pedestrianised.
