Space for a second carriageway on Allard Way

The A4082 is a short A-road to the southeast of Coventry city centre.

The route starts at the roundabout with the A444, locally known as Whitley Island, and heads east – as a short stretch of D2 dual carriageway (formerly part of the A423) – to reach a roundabout junction with the B4110. From here it continues as the new-build Allard Way, dropping to S2 single carriageway after a few hundred yards. However, there is evidence of future proofing for a dual carriageway here, as there is a very wide railway bridge, and large grass verges either side.

A signalised junction with Second Avenue (to the left) provides access to the former Marconi/GEC works, and the road then continues to another traffic-light-controlled junction, this time with the A428 Binley Road, where it ends. Ahead is the unclassified Hipswell Highway.

History

It is thought that this road, which dates from the 1980s, was part of a plan for a 'middle' ring road, presumably planned to continue along Hipswell Highway and Sewall Highway, and probably terminating somewhere on the A444 Phoenix Way in the Foleshill area. The number was taken over from an earlier A4082, the southern part of which (today unclassified) followed a roughly parallel course between Willenhall and Binley.
