|Route outline (key)|
The B5009 was an east-west road south of Derby.
Starting at a junction with the A516 in Hilton it headed eastwards. It crossed the A38 and Trent & Mersey Canal before going through Willington. It then followed the River Trent downstream past Barrow upon Trent to end on the A514 at Swarkestone just north of its bridge over the river. The road seems to have been upgraded to become the A5132 in the 1960s, with various reroutings coming later.
The A516 now begins its run towards Derby at a junction with the modern route of the A50 immediately northeast of Hilton, and it is the A5132 which today – with short bypass links at Hilton and Barrow (the latter dating from 1969) – connects that point to Swarkestone along the route of the former B5009.
