The northern end of the B4177

The B4177 forms a somewhat circuitous link around the western side of Dudley town centre. The road was originally unclassified but, except for the southern end, gained its current designation in the mid-1920s, making it an early example of a recycled number.

Starting at a roundabout on the A459 and A461, the road heads north along a wide D2, which becomes a residential S2 after crossing a roundabout. At the next set of lights the B4587 continues ahead into the town centre whilst the B4177 TOTSOs left onto Aston Road, which bears round to the right to cross the A4101 at traffic lights.

Now with the town centre to the east, the B4177 heads north along Wellington Road, which has a number of warehouses dotted amongst the housing. The road then bears round to the right to pass the leisure centre and reach traffic lights, where the B4587 crosses us. A short distance further on, at the next set of lights, we reach the B4176.

There's a multiplex along that road into the town centre, which ends where the B4176 becomes one-way towards us. At this point traffic is forced to turn left onto the continuation of the B4177, which is now one-way northbound. We follow a narrow road on the edge of the town centre to a T-junction where we TOTSO right to become two-way again. We now follow the leafy Ednam Road past the council offices and Coronation Gardens, before reaching the route's end at a light-controlled T-junction on the A459, where we may only turn right.

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