|Route outline (key)|
The B5342 is a short B-road to the south of Liverpool city centre.
The road starts at a signalised TOTSO on the A561 in Dingle and heads northeast along the residential Ullet Road. The B5174 turns off to the left almost immediately, after which our road skirts Princes Park. The B5173 then turns left at traffic lights and our road continues on to a T-junction, where it meets the B5175 and TOTSOs right.
Still on Ullet Road, the B5342 continues east past St Agnes Field, another park. It's not long before traffic lights are reached, where the road ends on the A562.
The B5342 was created in the 2010s when the southern half of the A5089 was downgraded. However, the road only gained that number in the 1980s to begin with.
Originally the western section of Ullet Road was the B5173, whilst the eastern section was the B5175. The bit connecting the two was originally unclassified although it later gained Class II status, presumably as a spur of either of these two roads.
