Route

The B4234 (former A4149) Broad Street

The A4149 was a short link road heading north out of Ross-on-Wye.

The road started on the A40 in the Market Place and headed north along the surprisingly narrow Broad Street; this started off descending steeply but soon levelled out as it left the town centre behind. The road continued onto Brookend Street and met the A4152 Greytree Road just before going under a railway viaduct. Although the bridge was dismantled following closure of the line many of the pillars still exist as a memorial.

The road continued north out of town before ending on the A449 northern bypass, in more-or-less the same place as the roundabout is now.

History

The A4149 is the original route of the A449 (renumbered from A48 in 1935) into Ross. When that road was moved onto the northern bypass in the 1950s the old road retained Class I status, becoming the A4149. Later, the A40 eastern bypass was built, taking that road out of the town. The A4149 was therefore no longer needed and so it was renumbered as part of the B4234. It remains this number, although the southernmost section is now one-way northbound.
