|Route outline (key)|
The B5175 is a short link road to the east of Liverpool city centre.
Originally the road started on the A562 Smithdown Road and headed west along Ullet Road. However, that first section became part of the B5342 in the mid-1920s and so the B5175 now starts just past the Croxteth Gate of Sefton Park, where the B5342 TOTSOs left and the B5175 sets off westward along Croxteth Road.
Shortly, the B5173 is crossed at traffic lights, after which the B5175 skirts the northeastern side of Princes Park before meeting the B5174 at a roundabout junction. From here the route continues northwestward along a wide dual carriageway lined with trees and grand houses. Interestingly the two carriageways have different names: Princes Road northbound and Princes Avenue southbound.
After passing the tall steeple of the now-derelict Welsh Presbyterian Church (locally nicknamed the "Toxteth Cathedral"), the B5175 returns to S2 status before ending at a light-controlled junction with the A562 Upper Parliament Street and A5039 Catharine Street.
