The B5361 was a short link road in Birkenhead. It was originally unclassified but existed for a few years in the 1960s. Reconstruction of the Queensway Tunnel approaches in 1969 seems to have downgraded the road again as the two ends were completely redeveloped.
The road started on the A41 Chester Street and headed west along Waterloo Place before turning right onto Tunnel Road. Although the road appears to be named after the Queensway Tunnel this is actually not the case and Tunnel Road predates the road tunnel considerably. The road ran past the site of Birkenhead Town station (which was closed before the B5361 came into being) and then continued over the top of the rail tunnels to Woodside and Monk's Ferry. The B5361 then ended in King's Square, back on the A41 and opposite the entrance to the road tunnel.
