|Route outline (key)|
The road starts at traffic lights where the A51 moves onto the western bypass. The old road into the city centre turns off to the right immediately afterwards and we run northeastwards along Eastern Avenue. We skirt the edge of town, with no buildings actually accessible from the A5192 but we do meet the occasional side road serving the suburbs.
Presently the road reaches the edge of town and bends round to the right so that it runs southeastwards. A minor road turns left at this point. This section of the road is more built-up, with buildings on both sides. Again there's very little actually accessible from the A5192 itself except when we pass through the suburb of Netherstowe where there are some houses on the left. We then pass through an industrial estate and then descend to a roundabout on the A5127. This is the original A38 and so the bypass technically splits here depending on which direction of the A38 you now want.
Northbound A38 traffic turns left onto the A5127 whilst southbound traffic continues ahead on the remainder of the A5192. We go under the Cross City Line and then bear round to the left to a roundabout. It's not long before we meet the northbound A38 offslip and go under the main road. The A5192 ends on the far side where the majority of traffic will turn right onto the A38 southbound onslip.
When originally built in the 1970s, the A5192 was numbered B5170, gaining its current number in the 1980s.
