B5202 Knowsley – Rainford
Roundabout on the B5202

The B5202 is a short link road near Kirkby in south Lancashire.

The route starts by the village green at the northern end of Knowsley Village. The green forms a triangular junction where the northbound B5194 TOTSOs left and it is from this point that the B5202 continues Knowsley Lane to the north.

A short distance further on, the road reaches a roundabout. Traffic is directed to take the second exit onto the unclassified Ormskirk Road, which meets the A580 (East Lancashire Road) and A5208 at a signalized crossroads. The B5202, however, takes the third (unsigned) exit off the roundabout. This also meets the A580, but at a LILO junction, so that this final part of the B5202 is signed only as an exit for westbound traffic on the A580.

History

The East Lancs Road (A580) not having opened until 1934, the B5202 before that date continued for a further four miles beyond its present northern terminus, running first eastward for a mile and three quarters along what was then New Road and Mossborough Road, before turning north-north-eastward where Mossborough Road curved left to head for Rainford and the A570. That final section between today's A580 and Rainford became, and remains, an extension of the B5203 when the East Lancs Road opened in 1934.

An amended OpenStreetMap trace for this route awaits uploading to the SABRE Wiki.
