|Route outline (key)|
The B5124 is a link road through the northeastern suburbs of Blackpool. Originally it was numbered B5264 south of what is now the A586 and unclassified to the north but the whole road quickly became part of a rerouted A587. The road gained its present number around 1990.
The route starts at a half-roundabout on the A587]] Bispham Road and heads south along Devonshire Road. This road is largely residential, although to begin with we pass a park and a school on the left, which is followed by a golf course on the right. We climb to cross a double roundabout, meeting the B5265 at the second.
Continuing south we pass a line of shops then descend to go under the railway line out of Blackpool North station. We cross the A586 at traffic lights. Blackpool Tower can be glimpsed to the right. We pass a few more shops and a modern school before descending to Devonshire Square, a grandiose name for a signalised crossroads. The B5124 ends here. To the left is the B5266 whilst the A583 takes the other two directions.
