The B5413 is a short link road to the southwest of St Helens. It was originally unclassified then had Class I status briefly before gaining its present number in the 1930s.
The road starts life at a signal-controlled junction with the A58 in the Thatto Heath area of St Helens. It heads south, descending into Thatto Heath proper, and curves to the right past the local park on the left. There is a bridge over the railway line between St Helens Central and Liverpool Lime Street stations, and then the B5413 comes to a busy signal-controlled crossroads. There is then a series of sharp, narrow bends through the Brown Edge area followed by a roundabout with two unclassified roads, which are the access roads to two relatively new housing estates.
After the roundabout, there is a flowing left-hand corner, shortly after which there is a T-junction with the B5204 on your left. On the far side the road begins to enter Rainhill. There is a signal-controlled T-junction with a residential road which leads to Rainhill Railway Station, then the B5413 heads off to the right and soon comes to an end at a signal-controlled T-junction with the A57.
