Route outline (key)
A5125 Braunstone - Belgrave
This article is about the former route to the west of Leicester.
For the seemingly extant route in the centre of Loughborough, see A5125

The OS Quarter Inch map of The Midlands published in April 1971 still shows the route as a B-class road
However, the 1972 revision shows the A5125, albeit unlabelled

The A5125 bypassed Leicester to the west between Braunstone in the south and Abbey Park in the north. The road was upgraded from the B583 (although it was diverted at its northern end) in 1971. It spent a few later years as the A46 mainline but the road is now unclassified, apart from the northern end which is numbered B5327.

The now-unclassified former A5125 Wyngate Drive

The road started on the A46 (now A5460) Narborough Road to the south of the city centre. It headed north along Fullhurst Avenue before bending a few times to cross the A47 Hinckley Road. After winding into Fosse Road North the road crossed the A50 Groby Road at a staggered crossroads.

The road continued along the dual-carriageway Blackbird Road, which bent sharply right to reach Abbey Lane. Whilst the B583 turned left here the A5125 continued ahead, with Abbey Lane numbered as the A5131. The road headed east past the abbey to cross the River Soar and skirt Abbey Park. It ended at a roundabout on the A6 (now A607) Belgrave Road.
