|Route outline (key)|
The A4168 forms part of the signed route into Dudley town centre from the north.
Starting at traffic lights on the A4123 Wolverhampton to Birmingham New Road, it heads south along Priory Road. Although residential the road is also semi-rural, with open space to the west for some distance. Later it becomes a dead-straight tree-lined avenue with houses on both sides, before passing Priory Park to the left and then crossing the A459 at a roundabout.
At the next roundabout it is the B4177 that is crossed and the road enters the town centre. It passes the Council House and then becomes New Street, which has shops on either side. The last block is one-way in this direction. Finally the A4168 reaches the Market Place where vehicles must turn left into Castle Street, now an unclassified road although it had once been part of the A461 (since rerouted onto the bypass).
