|Route outline (key)|
The road starts at traffic lights on the A56 Cross Street to the north of Sale town centre and not far south of M60 J7. We head east along the residential Dane Road and soon go over the Bridgewater Canal followed by the Metrolink by Dane Road station. The road then becomes more suburban and passes a park (the Priory Gardens) before a few bends take it to traffic lights on the A6144. M60 J6 is just to the left but we turn right and multiplex along the D1 road for a short distance.
The B5397 regains its number by taking the next turn left. Now on Wythenshawe Road it heads southeast then south to end at a T-junction on the B5166 Northenden Road.
