Route:West Bromwich - Streetly
Although the road is under 6 miles long, it is a busy route and is a dual carraigeway for its entire length.
Queuing is frequent leading up to the Scott Arms junction
The route starts at the junction with the A4031 by Dartmouth golf club, and it then passes through Sandwell Valley and over the M5. The speed limit at this point is 50mph and this limit is enforced by speed cameras.
The road then reaches Hamstead and the speed limit reduces to 40mph. There is an at level junction with Hamstead Road. This junction is on a fairly steep hill and the speed limit here is enforced by speed cameras as well. Coming down the hill, quite a bit of care must be taken not to exceed the speed limit at this point.
The road then passes over a canal and also passes red house park. Shortly after the park is the Scott Arms junction.
The road has now reached New Oscott. About half a mile further on, there is a further junction with the B4149 Kings Road.
The road carries on for a further mile or so. Firstly, the road reaches Streetly and there is a further roundabout with a minor road - Aldridge Road. Eventually the route terminates on the A452 right by the edge of Sutton Park.
