|Route outline (key)|
The B4090 is a rural B-road in the west Midlands.
It starts at the southern end of the Droitwich bypass and heads north along the pre-bypass A38 into town, where it goes round three sides of the very centre. It then crosses the original route of the A38 (the northern section of which is now numbered B4065) at a slightly staggered traffic-light-controlled crossroads. This is the original western end of the B4090.
Heading east, the B4090 soon goes under the M5 although there is no junction here. It crosses the Worcester & Birmingham Canal and the Birmingham to Cheltenham railway line in quick succession. After all these crossings the B4090 follows the Salt Way to Woolmere Green and the junction with the B4091. It continues to follow a Roman Road to Feckenham and Edgiock where it crosses the B4092, after which it climbs to reach the A441 (which here is running along The Ridgeway) at New End.
There is a brief multiplex north along the A441 before the B4090 heads off east once more. It changes county almost immediately before descending to King's Coughton on the northern edge of Alcester. The road ends here at a roundabout where it meets the A435 and B4089.
