|Route outline (key)|
Starting on the A4 Portway at traffic lights, the A4162 climbs up through Sea Mills, crosses the B4054 at more lights and then leads a fairly uneventful life as it weaves it's way through the 1930's suburban estates of West Bristol. The only thing of any interest along the way is the funny little roundabout where West Parade and Sunny Hill join, which the A4162 simply strides through the middle of as if it had never existed. I suspect that this was a 1930s developer idea of green space which was bulldozed as soon as the route became an important through route.
Anyway, we finally approach the A4018 at Westbury on Trym, and the A4162 splits in two for northbound and southbound traffic. One spur is Canford Road, the other Canford Lane, and both join the A4018 at traffic lights.
The 1953 OS map marks the route as unclassified throughout.
