A5098 Bootle - Walton
Railway bridge on Marsh Lane

The A5098 is an urban A-road in the Lancashire town of Bootle. The road was originally unclassified but gained its present number in the late 1920s.

At one time the road started on the A5036 Regent Road. However, this is now a private road running through the docks and so the road starts to the east on the A565 Primrose Road at traffic lights. It heads east along Marsh Lane, which starts in light industry and quickly bends to the right to become residential. The road goes underneath the Liverpool to Southport railway line and skirts the town centre along a short stretch of dual-carriageway before the A567 is crossed at traffic lights. The road narrows and becomes residential once more before some large gasometers are passed and the road crosses the Leeds & Liverpool Canal on a bridge that requires a lengthy climb to it on both sides. The A5090 is crossed at traffic lights and the A5098 moves onto Aintree Road.

After the next set of lights the road becomes technically D1, although the central reservation seems to be designed to be driven over. The road is now wholly residential. The A5038 is crossed at a roundabout and the road continues, still D1 as it passes Walton Gaol (officially HMP Liverpool) on the left and the cemetery on the right before going over the Liverpool to Ormskirk railway line. The houses come back for a brief period before the road ends at traffic lights on the A59 adjacent to Rice Lane station on the Kirkby branch line.
