Rotton Park Road

The B4129 is a north-south B road in west Birmingham. The road was originally unclassified and appears to have gained its number in 1935.

The road starts at a junction with the A457 (named Dudley Road at that point) and travels south as Rotton Park Road. It crosses over the A4040 City Road and the B4125 Portland Road before meeting the A456 at a signal-controlled junction about one mile south of its start point. It then continues over that road and follows Norfolk Road and then Nursery Road as it enters the district of Harborne.

The road meets the B4124 Harborne High Street at a tight junction (known locally as the Green Man junction after the pub at the junction). From here it continues southwest as Metchley Lane, the route travelling along the traditional border between Edgbaston, Warwickshire (to the left), and Harborne, Staffordshire (to the left). The name Metchley Lane itself comes from the Roman Metchley Fort, which was located where the Queen Elizabeth Hospital now stands, the B4129 passing to the west of the hospital grounds. The B4129 ends at a small roundabout marking its second encounter with the A4040, along which traffic can continue towards Selly Oak and there join the A38.
