|Route outline (key)|
The B5229 is a short B-road on the western edge of the Salford urban area.
The road starts at traffic lights on the A576 to the north of Eccles town centre and heads west along the residential Half Edge Lane before meeting the B5230 at a mini-roundabout. Our road continues west, then northwest after the next mini-roundabout, along Monton Road into Monton itself. The B5231 is met at a roundabout in the centre of the village and the B5229 is the dominant partner in a short multiplex past Monton Green to the next roundabout.
The Bridgewater Canal is crossed and the road continues west along Parrin Lane before reaching the M602. When the motorway was constructed the B5229 was rerouted slightly, so the two roads now run parallel for about a hundred yards before the B5229 ends at traffic lights on the B5211 (former A575) adjacent to a bridge under the motorway. The original western end of the B5229 was slightly further south, by the library.
