The B4148 is an urban B-road on the northern edge of Birmingham.

It starts at the A38 TOTSO of The Norton Crossroads on the edge of Erdington and heads northeast to cross the A452 in Tyburn before heading northwards into Walmley. Here, at a set of traffic lights, a spur of the B4148 comes in from the west, having started on the A5127 (former A38) at Chester Road. In fact, this spur (and the road ahead) is the original route of the B4148; the bit south via Tyburn was added in the 1940s.

The B4148 now forms a bypass of Sutton Coldfield. It heads north along Walmley Road to a set of traffic lights where it TOTSOs left. Walmley Road continues into Reddicap Heath where it takes the left fork; the B4148, however, forks right (and has priority) into Hollyfield Road, which leads to Whitehouse Common. The B4148 ends here at traffic lights on the A453. Prior to the construction of the A38 Sutton Coldfield bypass, which severed the link, the road ahead, although unclassified, was the quickest way to Lichfield from here.
