|Route outline (key)|
The A5185 is a short A-road in Salford.
The road starts at traffic lights on the A57 to the east of Eccles town centre. It heads north and immediately crosses over the Manchester Victoria to Liverpool railway line and the adjacent M602. After passing Salford Royal Hospital the road reaches traffic lights on the A576 where it turns right for a short multiplex to the next set of lights.
Heading north once more the A5185 follows the residential Lancaster Road. We pass a couple of open spaces and cross a mini-roundabout before ending at traffic lights on the A580.
