|Route outline (key)|
It starts in at least three places on the A4053 Coventry ring road (although its original starting point was on the A423 Bishop Street). After extricating itself from the mess it heads northeastwards along Stoney Stanton Road, crossing the Coventry Canal twice before meeting the A444 at a roundabout.
In Bell Green it crosses the B4082 at a junction made up of half a roundabout and a T-junction (where the B4109 TOTSOs left and the B4082 right). It then heads north, soon going under the M6 and crossing the Oxford Canal to enter open country. After going under the West Coast Main Line the village of Bulkington is entered and the road meets the B4029 at a mini-roundabout by the recreation ground.
The B4029 is the dominant partner in a multiplex east through the centre of Bulkington. It TOTSOs right at a mini-roundabout where it meets the B4112 before the B4109 regains its number by taking the next road left. It heads east along Wolvey Road through Ryton before going over the M69. Some ponds (part of a fishery) are passed before the road enters Wolvey itself and reaches a double mini-roundabout where it meets the B4065.
This is the original end of the B4109; the other road here is the original line of the A46. That road was downgraded in the 1970s when the parallel M69 was built and at the same time the B4109 was extended. It turns left at the roundabouts then TOTSOs left after leaving the village. The road ahead is unclassified but that is the old A46; from this point on the B4109 follows the pre-M69 route of the A447.
The B4114 is soon crossed (the B4109 has priority). After the next road to the left the B4109 bends to the right. It leaves the ex-A447 here; that went straight ahead but the road was severed by the M69. Soon afterwards a roundabout is met, where the road crosses both the A5 and the M69; this is junction 1 of the motorway.
Now in its last stretch, the B4109 continues north and soon rejoins the old road (although there is no actual junction). It runs through the southern suburbs of Hinckley before going under the Nuneaton to Leicester railway line on the edge of the town centre. It ends immediately afterwards at a roundabout where it meets the B590. The A447 used to continue straight ahead.
