Route outline (key)
B5999 Porthill - Tunstall
The A5271 (possible ex-B5999) in Longport

When the A527 northern bypass of Tunstall, Staffordshire was built, the original route from A50 in the town centre through Longport to the A500 in Porthill was renumbered.

Currently, it is shown on maps as part of the A5271, which is a number that appears very rarely on road signs. However, its original renumbering, as far as some mapmakers were concerned, was B5999, although it is unclear whether the road was actually ever genuinely numbered B5999, or whether this was more a copyright trap or holding number.

This page includes a scan of a non-free copyrighted map, and the copyright for it is most likely held by the company or person that produced the map. It is believed that the use of a limited number of web-resolution scans qualifies as fair use under United Kingdom copyright law, where this web page is hosted, as such display does not significantly impede the right of the copyright holder to sell the copyrighted material, is not being used to generate profit in this context, and presents information that cannot be exhibited otherwise.
