The A50 is a major trunk road running for almost 100 miles between Warrington and Leicester.

The A50 has been vastly upgraded between Stoke on Trent and J24 of the M1 at Kegworth with much of the route being built in the 1980s and 90s to form a high-speed link across the Midlands, fulfilling a role which was planned to be taken up by the planned M64 motorway which was never built.
