The A5058 road, known as Queens Drive for much of its length, is a major ring road in Liverpool. It is that part of the A5058 that connects Breeze Hill in Bootle, at the intersection with the A59, with Aigburth Vale in Aigburth. The road was designed by civil engineer John Alexander Brodie, and was the UK's first ring-road.[2]
