The A46 bridge over the Binley to Brinklow road: the former B4111, later A4114, and now the B4428

From the 1922 Road Lists, the B4111 linked the A428 at Binley to the A427 at North Kilworth. It was extended in the early 1930s to meet the southern extension of the A50 (previously B568, now A5199) at Bosworth Lodge.

Around 1935, the original route had been upgraded to the A4114. The extension apparently remained the B4111 for a few years before being renumbered as B5414 as it was entirely out-of-zone.

Strange things have happened with the road numbering since then, although the B5414 has remained constant. The rest was renumbered A427 in the 1960s. The bit between Coventry and the A5 was later downgraded to Class II status again, becoming the B4027, despite that number already being in use. With the coming of the A14 in the 1990s the eastern section was renumbered A4303 between the A5 and M1, then A4304 as far as North Kilworth, thus providing two out-of-zone numbers. Sanity was partially restored in the 2000s when the B4027 was renumbered B4428.
