|Route outline (key)|
The road starts at traffic lights by Lidl on the B5320 Liverpool Road to the south of Irlam town centre and heads east along Fairhills Road. We pass houses and a fire station on the left and an industrial estate on the right before a small green area on the left contains the old course (i.e pre-Manchester Ship Canal) of the River Irwell. There's more of the same on the far side but the road quickly ends at a T-junction on the A57 on the bank of the ship canal.
