|Route outline (key)|
In 1973, the A423 between Coventry and the then-A47 at Over Whitacre was mostly downgraded to B4098, with the exception of the section from Coventry city centre to the edge of the urban area near Coundon and Keresley, which gained the A4170 number.
Starting on the A4053 inner ring road at what is now J9, the road headed northwestwards along Radford Road. After crossing the Coventry to Nuneaton railway line and meeting the B4107 the road became dual and continued through a couple of roundabouts before ending for no apparent reason at the junction with Keresley Green road; the road ahead was the B4098.
Sometime in the late 1980s, this anomalous section was downgraded to B4098, making a continuous number from Coventry city centre to Kingsbury.
