Looking south-west

The B4139 is a short link road in Erdington in north Birmingham. It follows the original route of the A38 (since renumbered A5127 here) through the suburb. The road is mostly one-way – and cannot be driven in its entirety in either direction – so there appears to be little reason for its Class II status. Nevertheless, the route is included in the official list of classified roads published by Birmingham City Council and is indicated accordingly on maps, although the number is not signed on the ground.

The route starts at Six Ways, a roundabout junction with the A4040 and A5127, from where it heads north-eastwards along Erdington High Street. At this point it is one-way in this direction. Although the road is wide enough to have been a major through route in its day it is lined with shops and much of the carriageway is taken up with parking and loading bays. The road becomes briefly two-way as it passes St Barnabas' Church (which looks fairly modern as it was rebuilt in the 2010s after a fire), then one-way again, but this time towards us.

The north-east end of the High Street, although it was once also a part of the B4139, is today pedestrianized, so that it is now a 100-metre section of New Street that forms the northernmost part of the route, linking the southwest-bound carriageway of the A5127 Sutton New Road to the High Street.

An OpenStreetMap trace for this route awaits uploading to the SABRE Wiki.
