C502 Emerson - Biddick
This article is about the Class III road numbered C502 maintained by Sunderland Council.
For other roads numbered C502, see C502

The C502 is a short, round-about route in the new town of Washington, functioning as a suburban distributor for most of its route. The road appears to begin at Emerson Interchange, where the A195(M) becomes the A195, and heads south before bending around towards the west along Birtley Road. It then reaches a set of traffic lights where the mainline TOTSOs left; however the straight ahead route is also numbered C502 up to the local authority boundary. Less than 200 yards south of this junction the same thing happens - the mainline TOTSOs left onto Rickleton Way while the route straight ahead, also numbered C502, continues to the local authority boundary.

Bonemill Lane, Fatfield; the River Wear is over the fence to the right

Beyond here the road forms the northern and eastern boundary of Rickleton, a typical new town housing development. As such, there are no frontages on the road and the surroundings are green. The former through route in the area, Vigo Lane, has been swallowed up in the more modern estate. After circumnavigating Rickleton, the C502 has to give way and turns left onto Bonemill Lane which it follows through Harraton. It leaves the built-up area behind and passes under the A182 at a diamond interchange. Dotted with houses and pubs, it hugs the north bank of the River Wear before coming to an end on the C503 by the Biddick Inn.
