The Western Orbital was a proposed motorway that would have passed to the west of Wolverhampton and the Black Country.
It was proposed to run from M5 junction 4 (where it would have also met the unbuilt M42 Lydiate Ash Link) or junction 4A, to the M6 north of junction 12, with a spur running to the M6 Toll between M6 Junction 11A and Junction T8.
It was intended as a bypass to the conurbation, rather than as part of a fully orbital route.
It was proposed in conjunction with the Kidderminster, Blakedown and Hagley Bypass, and had the alternative name of Wolverhampton and Stourbridge Western Bypass.
