The A49
The A49 is a major road that runs for 158 miles from Bamber Bridge, near Preston, to Ross-on-Wye.

The section north of Warrington is mostly a non-primary road for local traffic, having been largely superseded by the M6 motorway. South of Warrington, the route traverses the Welsh Marches region LinkExternal link , following the hills along the English/Welsh borders although it never actually enters Wales; usually running around ten miles away from the border as it winds its way through Cheshire, Shropshire and Herefordshire although it comes within a couple of miles near Whitchurch. The road is all primary but mainly single carriageway, which means that traffic queues sometimes build up behind tractors or slow-moving goods vehicles. The stretch between the A5 at Shrewsbury and Ross-on-Wye is a trunk road, maintained by the national Highways England.
