|Route outline (key)|
The road originally started on the A589 Marine Road Central and followed Euston Road but this is now pedestrianised so the present western end is further along the coast at a roundabout by the former Promenade station. We head east along the old railway alignment through a retail park, with the road D2 for a couple of roundabouts until we reach the present site of the station. The road now bears round to the left to pass the library and a row of houses to reach a gyratory at the eastern end of the pedestrian area.
We go round three sides of the gyratory (westbound traffic follows the fourth side, meeting the B5274 en route) then continue east along the remainder of Euston Road. After bearing right at a mini-roundabout we cross a bridge over the railway line then follow Lancaster Road through the suburbs to a roundabout where we rejoin the A589.
There's a short multiplex to the right to the next roundabout where the B5321 takes the second turn-off. The next road to the left is the B5275 after which we continue through the centre of Torrisholme. There's then a brief rural section, in which we go under what will become the A683, then we enter the Lancaster suburb of Scale Hall.
We continue east along the residential Torrisholme Road and presently go under a low, narrow bridge under the West Coast Main Line. We now skirt Ryelands Park on our right and follow it to journey's end at traffic lights on the A6 to the north of the city centre.
