|Route outline (key)|
The road started by the fire station at the point where Corporation Street changed number from the A38 (which moved onto Steelhouse Lane) to the A455 (later A34) which came in along Lancaster Street. The A4028 headed southeastwards along Stafford Street, ending shortly afterwards on the A47 where that moved from Dale End into Coleshill Street.
The A4028 was later (after heavy demolition) incorporated into the A4400 Birmingham Inner Ring Road and was changed beyond recognition. Stafford Street itself was upgraded to become the grade-separated James Watt Queensway, whilst its two ends became Lancaster Circus and Masshouse Circus.
The eastern side of the A4400 has since been downgraded and Masshouse Circus abolished. The ex-A4028, still James Watt Queensway, is now either numbered B4100 or B4114, depending on what map you look at.
