Parkway Roundabout is located to the southwest of the Black Country town of Wednesbury and is between Wolverhampton and West Bromwich along A41. It was constructed in the early 1990s as part of the A41 Black Country Spine Road.
The junction is notorious locally for a poor level of surface grip, which has led to a number of collisions on the roundabout.
HistoryBlack Country Spine Road was planned to be grade separated throughout when designed in the late 1980s. Poor ground conditions and escalating costs resulted in major cutbacks to bring down the cost of the road. This meant all the planned grade separation was abandoned. Parkway Roundabout would have effectively formed one half of an interchange with Steel Roundabout as the Midland Metro line (former GWR mainline) poses a barrier.
