Route outline (key)
A5131 Leicester - Birstall
The A6 (former A5131) St Margaret's Way

The A5131 was a short radial road heading north of Leicester city centre. The road gained its number between 1960 and 1975, presumably as part of an upgrade of the city's road network.

The road started on the A46 (now A594 Vaughan Way and headed north along St Margaret's Way, passing the church of that name before going over the Grand Union Canal and the River Soar. It crossed the A5125 by the Abbey before continuing north along Abbey Lane, which was originally part of the B583. The road soon ended on Loughborough Road, which was the original line of the A6.

In a more recent road upgrade the A5131 became the mainline of the A6, with its old route through Belgrave being declassified.
