Looking east along the U119

The City of Wolverhampton Council's locally classified U119 is an important local route from the A449 at Vine Island Junction in the Fordhouses area of the city westwards to the suburbs of Wobaston and Pendeford, as well as the commercial and industrial areas along Wobaston Road, including the i54 and Pendeford Business Parks. It terminates on the local authority boundary, where it has an end-on connection with Staffordshire County Council's C40 which heads for the commuter villages of Bilbrook and Codsall.

Historically, the U119 is interesting as it forms the only constructed part of the Wolverhampton Outer Ring Road. The road between the A449 and the roundabout with The Droveway is laid out on a dual carriageway formation, but until the widening work of 2014 only the intended eastbound carriageway had been constructed, with the space for the westbound carriageway being a wide grassed area with the flats on that side having their backs to the road and no pavement.

During the 2014 work (which cost £3.5 million and was funded via the DfT's Local Pinch Point Fund), the space was finally utilised for the westbound carriageway, but only between Vine Island Junction and Patshull Avenue, with the wide grassed area remaining west of that point.
