A4036 Dudley - Pedmore

The A4036 runs south from the Black Country town of Dudley to Pedmore, just south of Stourbridge. One of its major functions is to provide access to the large Merry Hill shopping centre in Brierley Hill.

The road starts just south of the western end of the Dudley bypass, turning off the A461 at traffic lights. It heads south along the residential Highgate Road and soon goes over the mothballed South Staffordshire Line. The road becomes semi-industrial and widens to D2 before going over the Dudley Canal and descending to a signalised crossroads providing access to the Merry Hill Centre.

Dudley Road, Lye

Still D2, the road passes between a wood and the shopping centre, which is behind a bank to the west. Another signalised crossroads providing access is reached after a climb, followed by a crossing of the A4100 soon afterwards. The road then continues along a semi-residential/industrial road to a roundabout serving a housing estate. The road narrows and descends to cross the River Stour before climbing to cross the Birmingham to Stourbridge railway line by Lye station.

The road now reaches a signalised crossroads, which serves the eastbound A458. The westbound route is met one block further on at another set of lights as we skirt the edge of Lye itself. A couple of bends take us to a climb past the B4186 junction to a roundabout serving an unclassified road; both of these allow access to Stourbridge Junction station. The road continues south passing the wooded Ham Dingle before ending at a roundabout on the A491 to the south of Stourbridge.
