Solihull

After being revived, the A41 is the Solihull Bypass, then the Warwick Road through Olton, built-up with houses and some shops on both sides. At Olton we meet the Birmingham city boundary, and pass into Acocks Green, going right through the middle of this busy suburb. There have long been plans for a bypass, and much is built (Olton Boulevard East/West), but there are gaps which may never be bridged. From Acocks Green, we pass through Tyseley and Greet before meeting the A34 in Sparkhill, and carrying on along that road (although the A41 was dominant until the end of the 1990s) through Sparkbrook (this is all built-up, mainly Victorian) to the A4540 Birmingham Ring Road.

In April 2019, Micro The Maniac writes:
Notwithstanding the previous sentence, the signs "on the ground" still show Stratford Road as the A41 not the A34.
The bypassed section of A41 used the now-demolished Camp Hill Flyover

The A41 used to run through Digbeth and then along Bull Street to Snow Hill and then Constitution Hill; when Priory Queensway was built that took on the A41 number but now all of this is either unclassified or part of the B4100. The number emerges on the opposite side of the Birmingham Ring Road, and heads directly for West Bromwich, via Hockley (near the Jewellery Quarter), over the Hockley Flyover into Handsworth, and up Soho Road, a bustling highway lined with many Asian shops and eateries. From Handsworth it's just a short ride to the Hawthorns and M5 J1 and off to the Black Country.
