B5137 Spital Road at Oakridge Road

The B5137 is a link road from the M53 to Eastern Wirral.

The road originally started on the A551 near Gayton, in Western Wirral. However, this section was upgraded to Class I status with the construction of the M53, keeping its number so is now the A5137. For this reason the B5137 now starts at M53 junction 4 at Clatterbridge, where it also meets the B5151.

The road heads east into Bebington. On the edge of the urban area Old Clatterbridge Road comes in from the right; this is the original line of the B5136, which was then the dominant partner in a multiplex ahead. However, that road now arrives at Clatterbridge multiplexing along the B5151 and the B5137 is now dominant for the remainder of the multiplex, which ends a few hundred yards further on at traffic lights, where the B5136 turns left.

The B5137 continues east and crosses the Liverpool-Chester railway line at Spital station. It then descends to a mini-roundabout where it turns sharply right to cross the Dibbinsdale Brook. The road then heads southeast and reaches a set of traffic lights. A spur of the B5137 turns left to meet the A41 at traffic lights but the mainline continues ahead before having to TOTSO left and ending on the A41 at a LILO.
