|Route outline (key)|
The B4150 is a largely urban B-road through the eastern suburbs of Oxford. The road was originally unclassified but gained its number around 1990.
The road starts at traffic lights on the A420 opposite South Park in the suburb of Headington Hill. It heads vaguely northwards along Marston Road and initially seems fairly rural, with river meadows to the left and the campus of Oxford Brooks University to the right. After passing a couple of halls of residence the road becomes lined with houses and we continue north through New Marston.
Presently the road becomes dual (although car parking space is marked out on both sides making the through route effectively D1), which leads to a mini-roundabout on the B4495 by a parade of shops. We bear left past a petrol station and then turn right along the leafy Marsh Lane. The houses soon give way to a recreation ground and sports centre, after which the road forks at the start of its terminus GSJ with the A40 eastern bypass. Bear left to head west or continue ahead to head east.
