A587 road

The A587 is a road in England that runs from Blackpool to Fleetwood in Lancashire.

The road runs a total distance of approximately 9 miles, largely on residential and commercial streets. It begins by the Oxford roundabout, in Marton, in the south-eastern part of Blackpool, as a turning off the A583, Preston New Road. It continues north, as South Park Drive, past Stanley Park and Blackpool Victoria Hospital for about one and a half miles. At this point, as St Walburga's Road, it becomes dual carriageway for less than a mile. After a roundabout, it crosses the railway, and continues north as Bispham Road for a further mile to Bispham roundabout, where it becomes Devonshire Road and then Fleetwood Road. A mile further on it is joined at Anchorsholme by the A584, the Queen's Promenade, and continues north through Cleveleys for half a mile as a dual carriageway, with the tram tracks dividing the road. Past Cleveleys, as a single lane road, now known as Rossall Road, it continues north for a further mile and a half, past Rossall School and into Fleetwood, where it becomes Broadway. The road crosses West View roundabout, and turns right down Poulton Road, eventually terminating at the new Ash Street roundabout, near Fleetwood Freeport, where it joins to the A585.
