The A4302 (also known by its street name Metz Way) is a small road in Gloucester that is just under one mile long. It could probably be said that it could be one of the most important roads in the city, as it connects the Inner Ring Road (old A430) with the Outer Ring Road (A38).
Starting at traffic lights on the A38 Eastern Avenue the road heads west along an elevated Metz Way and crosses two sides of a railway triangle. It comes to a new signal controlled junction in the middle of this triangle which serves Morrisons and a Costa Drive Thru along with other businesses. Past this the road (still S2) crosses over Derby Road without a junction before dropping down to ground level and becoming D2. It then reaches another set of traffic lights which serve ASDA. Past these lights the road runs alongside the railway line before bending to the left and ending at traffic lights on the A430 Bruton Way.
The whole of the A4302 was opened in the early 1990s except for the junction inside the railway triangle which opened in 2014. What is now the elevated S2 section was formerly Windmill Parade, a short street which was demolished to make way for the road. The only evidence of where this former street stood is the street sign on the Great Western Pub at the northern end of Alfred Street. To the south west side of the D2 side formerly lay Gloucester Eastgate Railway Station, which closed in 1975 and lay derelict until the early 1990s (around the same time Metz Way was being built). This is now occupied by ASDA.
