New Town Row is a signalised junction connecting the A34 and the A4540, otherwise known as the Middle Ring Road in Birmingham. It is numbered junction 12 of the Middle Ring.

History

Late 1960s plan for the junction (left)

The junction was originally a normal crossroads where the A34 crosses New John Street West. In the mid-20th century there were plans for a middle ring road along the line of New John Street West. A three level junction was initially planned but this was changed to a two level junction by the late 1960s, see map (left).

Work soon started on dualling the A34 and A4540 east of the junction. However the planned grade separation never happened and to this day the junction remains a crossroads. The A4540 to the west was dualled c1990 although by this date the idea of building the flyover had long died.
