|Route outline (key)|
The original B5222 is described in the 1922 Road Lists as Manchester (Cross Street).
It started on the north side of Albert Square, on the B5221 which ran along John Dalton Street and Princess Street. It then headed north along the full length of Cross Street to end on the A6 Market Street. The A6042 Corporation Street was the road ahead.
The road was soon upgraded to become part of an out-of-zone southern extension of the A6042. The road was declassified as part of the restructuring following the 1996 IRA bombing.
