The A5199 road is the direct road from Northampton to Leicester in England. It was formerly part of the A50 trunk road that ran from Bedfordshire to Lancashire. For most of its length it is known as the Welford Road, except for small stretches near Welford where it is known as High Street and Northampton Road.

As its course is broadly parallel and near to the M1 motorway it is very much lacking in modern features such as bypasses which is why it was classified downwards when the A14 road, which it crosses at Junction 1, was built as a link between the M1/M6 junction and the East Coast ports.

This stretch in Welford is typical and indicates why the A50 number was withdrawn
