|Route outline (key)|
The B4284 is a very short B-road in Edgbaston, Birmingham. Its short length means that it is not yet known when this route (unclassified in 1922) acquired its number. Certainly the road is shown with Class II status on the OS Seventh Series map.
The road runs between the B4124 and Five Ways, where it meets the A4540 Birmingham Middleway. Throughout its short length the road is one-way in this direction. The road is called Harborne Road for its entire length although ironically any traffic travelling along it is heading away from Harborne. Traffic travelling away from Five Ways must use the B4217 and the unclassified Westbourne Road.
Despite offering a direct route between the B4124 and Five Ways, traffic to the City Centre is signposted to continue along the B4124 and the A456, perhaps because this gives access to the Five Ways Underpass between the A456 and Broad Street.
An OpenStreetMap trace for this route awaits uploading to the SABRE Wiki.
