The A5195 is a short A-road in southern Staffordshire providing the access to M6 Toll JT6. The section of road south of the motorway opened along with it in 2003 as the A5159; it is not known why the number was changed as that number was not in use elsewhere and the usual speculation is that of a transcription error.
The road starts at traffic lights on the A5, where it also meets the B5011 to the south. The road is dual as it heads north to the next roundabout, from where an unclassified road continues ahead into Burntwood and we turn left. Now S2 we pass the trumpet of the motorway junction before going under the motorway mainline. A roundabout is then reached giving access to the M6 Toll.
The A5159 ended at the roundabout; however, the A5195 continues ahead, now non-primary, past a school and a cemetery on the right and with Chasewater on the left - a turn-off provides access. We continue under a footbridge which provides access to the Chasewater Railway. We continue on to a roundabout on the A5190 Chase Terrace bypass, from where the railway can be accessed by vehicle.
