Moxley Junction is a modified roundabout junction located to the southeast of Wolverhampton. It was constructed in the early 1990s along with the Black Country Spine Road improvements along the A41 corridor between Wolverhampton and West Bromwich.
It also features a canal running underneath the roundabout, and the two bridges that once featured as part of the fork, Darlaston Road Bridge and Holyhead Road Bridge are now part of the circulatory carriageway.
HistoryBlack Country Spine Road was planned in the late 1980s it was to be built on a new alignment with grade separated junctions throughout. Unfortunately poor ground conditions and rising construction costs pushed up the price of the road and economies had to be found. The area around Moxley bears testament to the scaled back road that was eventually built to bring the scheme within an acceptable budget. Firstly, the new build alignment between Moxley and Wednesbury was abandoned in favour of dualling the existing A41 Holyhead Road and secondly, all the proposed grade separated junctions became flat roundabouts.
