B5402 Link in Hinckley
The B590 (former B5402) Hawley Road

The B5402 was a short road running through the south of Hinckley. Owing to its short length its history is not known. Certainly it was originally unclassified but had gained this number by the mid-1950s. The road was still shown as having Class II status in the 1980s but the eastern half of the road has now been renumbered B590 (the rest is unclassified); the change in number may have been earlier.

Starting on the A5070 ([present B4669) London Road the B5402 headed west alongside the railway line along the present route of the B590 as far as the station. The original route of the B590 headed north along Station Road but our road continued ahead to cross the A447 (present B4109) Rugby Road.

The road then continued parallel to the railway along Westfield Road. Some maps show the road turning right onto Northfield Road whereas others have it continuing ahead before following Strathmore Road. Either way it ended on the A47 (present B4666) Coventry Road.
