|Route outline (key)|
The Bilston Link Motorway was a proposed motorway to the south of Wolverhampton, giving the southern area of the city, plus the northern Black Country, easier access to the motorway network. A similar route was eventually constructed to a lower standard as parts of the A454 and A463, and called the Black Country Route. It would have linked M6 junction 10 to the Birmingham - Wolverhampton New Road, and had two spurs - one at Willenhall and a second at Bilston.
It does not appear to have been allocated a route number.A4123 was a flat roundabout.
The junction at Moxley serves a proposed early forerunner to the Black Country Spine Road. Little is known about the precise route other than to pick out gaps between development. It is assumed the dual carriageway along the line of the B4163 would have met up with the full access interchange giving westbound access to the motorway.The Keyway now allowing full access albeit with some weaving on the eastern side. The western bypass of Bilston now gains a flyover to the A4039. The proposals for the Bilston Links remained in this form for much of the 1970s.
