This article is about the Class III road numbered C509 maintained by Sunderland Council.
For other roads numbered C509, see C509
The C509 is a short urban route in north Sunderland. It starts at a T-junction on the A1018 (former A19) in Seaburn Dene, heading south-east along Dovedale Road. It passes through a mostly residential area before meeting the B1291 at a mini roundabout. The C509 disappears here, presumably multiplexing with the B1291 south to a crossroads by the Blue Bell pub.
The C509 resumes at the Blue Bell, heading south along Fulwell Road. It runs through the somewhat dilapidated residential area of Redby, before arriving at a gyratory where it turns abruptly left onto Roker Baths Road. Heading towards the coast, it passes the site of Roker Park football ground - formerly the home of Sunderland AFC and now a modern housing estate with referential street names such as Midfield Drive and Promotion Close. The road continues to the corner of Roker Park, where it forks into Park Parade and Roker Park Road. Neither are listed as part of the C509, so the junction must be the end of the road - having not quite made it either to the coast or to a terminus on a classified road.
