B5311 Sale bypass
This article is about the original B5311 Sale bypass.

Brooklands station

The B5311 was the original number of the Sale bypass, providing an alternative to the B5166 through the town centre. It was originally unclassified but gained its number in the early 1920s. When the A6144 was inaugurated around 1970 that road took over much of the B5166 but bypassed Sale rather than going through town; as such it took over the entire length of the B5311, making the number redundant.

At its western end the B5311 left the B5166 Carrington Road and headed south then southeast along Harboro Road to reach the A56 Washway Road. There was then a multiplex left towards the town centre before the B5311 regained its number by turning right onto Marsland Road. It crossed the Bridgewater Canal by what was Brooklands station before continuing eastwards onto Sale Moor, where it ended back on the B5166 Northenden Road.
