Approaching the junction from the west

Bentley Bridge Island is a roundabout junction on the A4124 to the northeast of Wolverhampton city centre.

Constructed in the late 1990s at the same time as the A4124 Wednesfield Way bypass of Wednesfield town centre, it provides a connection to the Bentley Bridge Retail and Leisure Park, which lies to the north of the junction. The roundabout is named after the retail and leisure park, which in turn takes its name from the cast-iron canal bridge at its northwestern corner which carries the towpath of the Wyrley and Essington Canal over its junction with the former Bentley Canal, now greatly reduced to just a short length of moorings.

The road running east-west through the retail park is Bentleybridge Way and signs on the A4124 approaches to the roundabout also use this unspaced spelling and give the name of the junction as Bentleybridge Island. In a further tweak, brown "visitor amenity" signs positioned at and immediately preceding the junction go in for the commercialese format (sometimes referred to as CamelCase) BentleyBridge.
