Route

Nottingham Road, Risley

The B5010 is a long-way-round route in the East Midlands. For historical reasons it lies entirely in the 6 zone.

It starts at A50 J1, where it also meets the B6540, and heads northwestwards, crossing the River Trent at Cavendish Bridge and then going through Shardlow, where it crosses the Trent & Mersey Canal. A couple of miles further on, on the edge of Thulston, the road splits. Ahead is a spur leading a short distance to a roundabout on the A6 but the mainline of the B5010 TOTSOs right.

The road now heads north through Thulston and Elvaston before crossing the River Derwent into Borrowash. It reaches the A6005 at a T-junction in the centre of the village. There is then a short multiplex to the east along the A6005 into Shacklecross, where the A-road TOTSOs right and the B5010 continues ahead to regain its number.

The B5010 goes under the A52 without a junction and continues east through Risley where it goes over the M1 and enters the Nottingham urban area (although it remains outside the city proper). It goes through Sandiacre and Stapleford before ending at a roundabout in Bramcote, where it meets the A52 and A6007.

History

The original route of the A6 and B5010 in 1923

The B5010 originally ran from Chellaston to Borrowash. It achieved this by way of an additional section from Chellaston to Thulston. This section was upgraded to A5132 in the 1960s and has since been declassified and partly severed by the new route of the A6.

The section from Borrowash to Bramcote used to be the A52. The Borrowash bypass opened in the 1950s and the B5010 was extended along the part of the pre-bypass route that did not become the A6005. At this point the B5010 ended on the A52 at the point where it now goes under it; Sandiacre and Stapleford were bypassed later and the B5010 was extended along more of the ex-A52 to give the road its current eastern terminus.

The original number of the road from Cavendish Bridge to Thulston was A6. This stretch was bypassed as part of the work for the Derby southern bypass in the 1990s. The A6 was diverted to meet the new road (planned as A564 but opened as A50) and so the B5010 was extended along the whole of the bypassed section of the A6, explaining the spur. This section remained trunk for some years afterwards but has now been downgraded.
