The A549 is a short road running east from Mold in Flintshire. It passes through Buckley before ending at Dobshill, just south of the A55.

The road begins on the Wylfa roundabout where the A494 and A541 meet at Pentre, on the Mold south-eastern bypass. It heads eastwards along Mold Road, a single-carriageway route which passes to the south of Mynydd Isa. The road continues through Buckley, its original alignment through The Cross in the town centre - part of which is now pedestrianised - having been bypassed by a short relief road. Both the the B5127 and the B5128 start on the A549 in Buckley, heading off in the same direction and converging with each other on their way towards towards Ewloe Green.

Heading into the countryside, the A549 crosses over the Borderlands railway line before arriving at a roundabout on the A550, a few hundred yards south of the A55 J35. This is where the road ends.

History

At its western end, the A549 originally started on the A494 in Mold town centre. The rerouting of the A541 to the east of the town saw it cut back to its current starting point at Pentre.

At its eastern end, the A549 continued beyond its current terminus at Dobshill, on a straight alignment to Broughton, where it passed through the village to end on the original route of the A55 near Hawarden airport. Upon the opening of the A55's southern bypass of Chester, the A549 appears to have briefly taken over the original route of that road into the city. However, the section between Dobshill and Broughton has since disappeared, while the former A55 between Hawarden Airport and Chester has since become part of the A5104.
