The A4123 Wolverhampton – Birmingham New Road was twentieth-century Britain's first new-build inter-city highway. Opened by the Prince of Wales on 2 November 1927, it pre-dated the oft-quoted A580 Liverpool – East Lancashire road by seven years.
Even today, nearly a century after it opened, it is almost universally known locally as simply The New Road.
