This article is about the Class III road numbered ZC5 maintained by Edinburgh Council.
For other roads numbered C5, see C5
The ZC5 starts on the A90, Queensferry Street just east of Dean Bridge, and includes both arms of the one-way Randolph Crescent. It then heads up to Ainslie Place, where it turns right to pass along the long Queen Street, past the well-known Queen Street Gardens. The tramline turns in from the right as the road becomes York Place, and soon comes to an end on the B901 at Picardy Place, just short of the A900, Leith Walk.
