|Route outline (key)|
The A564 number was used briefly in the mid 1990s. The number was allocated to the road between the M1 and the Uttoxeter bypass, partly an upgrade of the A50 and partly a completely new route to the south of Derby.
The only section of the A564 definitely numbered as such was the section of upgraded A50 between the A516 at Hilton Lodge and the A515 at the eastern end of the Sudbury bypass - locally known as the Hatton and Hilton bypass. This was built circa 1993, ahead of the sections to the east (to M1) and west (the Doveridge bypass).
On completion of the A564 in 1998, the entire section was renumbered A50. However, the A564 number is still attached to the project and can still be seen on official documentation to refer to this section of the A50.
Part of a notice regarding this road is still in the parish notice board in Swarkestone, dated 1990.
