The A5097 was a short link road to the east of Liverpool city centre.
The road started on the A5039 where that road turned from Myrtle Street into Catharine Street. The A5097 then continued east along the remainder of Myrtle Street, skirting what is now the University campus. It ended on Crown Street, which was the original route of the A5048.
The road was originally unclassified but came into being in the late 1920s to cut off the corner between the two roads it connected. It seems to have survived until at least the 1970s but is now unclassified. The A5048 now runs along Grove Street and most of the ex-A5097 east of there has been downgraded to become a cycle path.
