A5088 Wallasey Bridge Road, looking north

The A5088 is a short road on the Wirral.

The road starts on the A553 by St James' Church in north Birkenhead; for many years this was a roundabout with the church in the middle but the A553 now goes round only the north side of the building and meets the A5088 at traffic lights. We head north along Stanley Road and cross the railway line above Birkenhead North station. We then meet the A5030 at a roundabout before running through an area of light industry to cross the entrance to a former dock, now filled in. The A5139 is crossed at a roundabout on the far side, after which there's a short D2 section leading to traffic lights on the B5145.

The A5088 continues north along the residential Mill Lane, soon bridging the A59 Kingsway Tunnel approach road, which runs in a cutting at this point, and we continue on into Liscard. The A5027 is met at traffic lights, after which we pass the Victoria Hospital to end on a gyratory on the A551.

History

The route of the present A5088 was originally unclassified. The classification appears to date from the mid-1940s, although originally it referred only to the section between the A553 and the B5145 (then a part of the A5028). The extension into Liscard presumably dates from the time of the downgrading of the latter road.
