The A5230 is a 3.2 mile long road located in east London, United Kingdom. It runs from Hackney in the north to Whitechapel in the south, connecting the M11 motorway with the City of London. The road was built in the mid-1880s and was originally known as the East London and London East motorway. Since then, it has undergone several upgrades and improvements, including the widening of bridges, resurfacing and improved junction layouts.

The A5230 is one of the busiest roads in east London, with traffic volumes often reaching more than 20,000 vehicles per day. Most of the traffic is made up of commuters using the road to travel between the City and the eastern suburbs. During the morning rush hours, there can be up to 6,000 cars per hour on the road.

The safety record of the A5230 is typical for a road of its size. In 2016, there were four deaths on the road, although this figure is much lower than the long-term average for London roads.
