The A562 is a largely urban A-road in south Lancashire.

The road starts at the A5036 TOTSO by Liverpool Marina. It starts its route by heading east, soon crossing the A561 and running parallel to it albeit further inland. The road zigzags through the eastern suburbs of Liverpool and becomes dual in Wavertree. It then TOTSOs left at traffic lights then immediately right at a roundabout, crossing the A5058 as it does so. There is another TOTSO left in Hunts Cross; straight ahead is the A5275 to Speke and the airport.

The A561 is met again on the edge of town at a GSJ where the A562 TOTSOs and the road continues on (along the most well-engineered section of the road) to Widnes. There it has to TOTSO (stay on to access the A533 and cross the Silver Jubilee Bridge) again to form the non-primary southern bypass. The road is soon forced to join the northbound A557 at traffic lights.

After a short multiplex with the A557 as far as an elongated roundabout, the A562 heads east, passing the landmark Fiddlers Ferry power station. Initially single-carriageway, the road duals again to go through Penketh to terminate on the A57 on the western fringes of Warrington.
