Slade Lane

The A5079 is today a short link from the A6 to the A34 in the southern inner suburbs of Manchester. It meets the A6 Stockport Road at traffic lights, where the A5079 is one-way towards the A6. The road then heads south along the residential Slade Lane, which becomes two-way almost immediately. After going under the railway line to Manchester Airport the road bends to the right to become the dual-carriageway Kingsway. The road soon reaches a half-roundabout on the B5093, which merges with a full roundabout where the A34 zigzags under the railway line. The A5079 ends here.

The road was originally unclassified but gained its number in the mid-1920s. Until 1967 it continued further south along the Kingsway dual carriageway (now A34) to East Didsbury, while the A34 ran along the parallel Wilmslow Road.
