Approaching the roundabout junction with the A47

The B4132 is an urban B-road north-east of Birmingham city centre.

The route starts at the Curzon Circle roundabout on the A4540 Lawley Middleway, from where it heads north-eastward along Vauxhall Road and Great Francis Street. The latter road was once part of the A47; today, however, the B4132 reaches that road's current incarnation further north, at a roundabout on Nechells Parkway, having turned left just before crossing the railway at Duddeston and followed Melvina Road north.

Intermittently dual from this point on, the road continues north via Goodrick Way and Thimble Mill Lane before turning left at a roundabout immediately following a bridge over the Birmingham and Fazeley Canal. We now head west along Lynton Road to cross the A5127 at a further roundabout and follow Waterlinks Boulevard to the route's terminus at Park Circus. This limited interchange, the mid-point junction of the A38(M) Aston Expressway, affords links to and from the 1-mile-distant Spaghetti Junction.

History

Originally the B4132 started from a junction with the A47 at the northern end of Birmingham High Street, heading east from here along Albert Street, Curzon Street, and Lawley Street to reach the route's present starting-point. This section is one of the many roads in the centre of Birmingham that have subsequently been declassified – indeed, the western end of Curzon Street is now pedestrianized. The original route ended back on the A47 at the junction of Vauxhall Road and Ashted Row, a road which no longer exists. This is an area of the city that has altered out of all recognition in the last 50 years.
