The B5416 is a short link road in Burton upon Trent town centre.
Starting on the A5121 gyratory by the Town Hall in King Edwards Place, the road heads east along Borough Road and crosses a bridge over the Derby to Birmingham railway line by the station. After returning to ground level the road continues along the straight Station Road through one of the breweries (a gantry connecting the two halves runs above the road). It ends at traffic lights on the B5018 next to Sainsbury's supermarket.
The B5416 was first classified in the 1940s. At one time the road was somewhat longer, extending north and south from its current western terminus along what is now the A5121. This included Wellington Street to the south and Derby Street to the north, with just the south and east sides of the modern A5121 one-way system. It is not currently clear whether all of this route was allocated the B5416 number in one go, or if it was extended, or absorbed another shorter route.
The road's original eastern end was on the High Street, the original line of the A38.
