|Route outline (key)|
The B5142 is a short urban B-road in the northeast corner of the Wirral peninsula.
Originally it started to the south of Wallasey town centre, on the A5028 Breck Road, and headed east along Wallasey Road into Liscard. This section has since been taken over by a rerouted A551, so that the B5142 now starts on the one-way system in the centre of town.
The road heads north-east along the road known as Liscard Village before TOTSOing right (the road ahead is the B5143) at the first opportunity. Our road continues east-northeast along Manor Road to reach Egremont, where it ends at a T-junction with the A554 Seabank Road, next to the prominent but now disused Egremont Presbyterian Church.
