The Black Country Route is a completed road scheme on the south and east sides of Wolverhampton. It forms part of the A454 and A463, meeting junction 10 of the M6 at the eastern end, and the A4123 at the western end.
It is a downgraded successor to the unbuilt Bilston Link Motorway, with the eastern half of the route taking the planned line of the motorway and the western half taking a more northerly line much closer to Bilston town centre. The eastern half of the route is grade-separated, whilst the western half features flat roundabouts.
