A449

Goodyear Island is located on the A449 on the northern side of Wolverhampton. Whilst the junction itself is an unremarkable roundabout, it originally formed the main access to the European headquarters of the Goodyear Tyre and Rubber Company, which opened on the site in the 1920s.

The factory downsized massively in the mid-2000s, and today the roundabout forms an access to the housing estate being built on most of the site, along with some office buildings and a supermarket.
