Route outline (key)
A5190 Cannock - Pipehill

The A5190 is a link road in south Staffordshire. Originally part of the B5012 the road gained its current number in the 1960s.


The road starts at a roundabout on the eastern edge of Cannock town centre on the A4601 (former A460). It runs eastwards along Lichfield Road, soon passing under the Chase Line by Cannock station before crossing the A460 bypass at a roundabout. On the far side the road skirts the eastern suburbs (although there are very few buildings directly accessible from the A5190) and crosses the B4154 at a roundabout at Heath Hayes, marking the edge of the urban area.

We continue east along the rural Cannock Road to the next roundabout on the edge of Burntwood. Here we bear right to bypass part of town called Chase Terrace and also run to the south of a business park. At the next roundabout, which also provides access to the Chasewater Railway, we meet the A5195 which continues ahead, whilst we turn left to run through the business park and return to the old line of the road. The powers that be have decided that only Chase Terrace needs a bypass and so we now cut straight through the rest of town.

Lichfield Road, Edial

We leave town, again on Lichfield Road, by passing through the hamlet of Edial to enter open country. We now negotiate more bends in the next mile or so than we have so far on the route before we reach Pipehill and a roundabout on the A461. The A5190 ends here and the A461 continues ahead into the cathedral city of Lichfield.


Burntwood Bypass

Stage 1, the Milestone Way section east of Cannel Way, was opened in 1997. It was unclassified apart from the section between the High Street and Sycamore Road roundabouts which was then part of the B5011. The bypass was completed by Stage 2. Miners Way and Milestone Way (west of Cannel Way) opened in 2001 per Hansard.
