|Route outline (key)|
The B4129 was a short link road in Birmingham city centre. Despite its short length its route can be gathered from its entry in the 1922 Road Lists: Birmingham (Navigation Street, Lower Temple Street).
The road therefore started on the B4128 Suffolk Street (then a minor B-road and nothing like the dual carriageway it is now) and headed northeast along Navigation Street. It crossed the A38 John Bright Street/Hill Street before crossing the railway lines to the west of New Street station.
At the end of Navigation Street it crossed Stephenson Street and continued north along Lower Temple Street to end on New Street, whose most likely number was A456.
Owing to its short length it is not known how long the B4129 number lasted. The OS Seventh Series map gives the road Class I status but no number - it was actually the A4166. Traffic has now been removed from the centre of Birmingham and so the ex-B4129 is now unclassified. Lower Temple Street is pedestrianised.
