Route

Farington

The B5254 is a largely urban B-road in central Lancashire.

The road starts at a roundabout on the A59 in the Penwortham area of Preston and heads southeast, running alongside the River Ribble for a short distance, and crossing over the West Coast Main Line at Penwortham Lane. At Tardy Gate it meets the B5257 at traffic lights before the East Lancashire Line is crossed by Lostock Hall station.

After going over the A582 by means of a roundabout the B5254 heads into a "useless" multiplex with the A5083 (as the A5083 terminates at the A582 roundabout) before heading into the small village of Farington after the A5083 TOTSOs. After crossing the WCML again by Leyland station the road goes through what seems a total cock-up where the B5254 "weaves" around the B5256 via TOTSOs and traffic lights (and a short multiplex where the B5254 is dominant).

The road then continues through Leyland town centre along a section that is no better. More TOTSOs and traffic lights later the road ends at traffic lights on the B5248.

History

Originally the B5254 started on the A582 in Lostock Hall and headed south to end on the B5248 in Leyland. The original route through Leyland was straighter and more obvious but is now discouraged to through traffic. The southernmost section now has a Tesco car park built on top of it.

The northern end was quickly upgraded to Class I status, becoming the A5083, which it remains. As the B5254 was originally the through route that road had to TOTSO in Farington (and still does).

The B5254 was extended north following construction of the A582 Lostock Hall/Penwortham bypass. The entire pre-bypass road has been renumbered B5254.
