It started on the A457 Oldbury Road on the edge of Smethwick and headed north along Roebuck Lane. In quick succession, it crossed the Stour Valley Line the two branches of the Birmingham Canal Main Line, and then two railway lines west of Birmingham Snow Hill. The bridge over the New Main Line is the Galton Bridge, now Grade I listed. The road then bent to the left to end on the then-A41 at the eastern end of West Bromwich High Street.
The ex-B4168 is now unclassified and largely closed to traffic. The building of the M5 severed the road and the A4252 was built parallel to take its route. Galton Bridge and its approaches are now pedestrianised but some of the northern section of Roebuck Lane is still accessible to vehicles.
