Standeford Crossroads is a light-controlled crossroads located to the north of Wolverhampton on A449.

It marks the northern point where the original route of A449 diverges from its modern route, following the cunningly-named Old Stafford Road. Until autumn 2016 is was a rare example of a light-controlled crossroads on a road subject to a 70mph speed limit, but the speed limit currently stands at 60mph.

It is relatively hidden when approaching via A449 from the south, as it is located within a dip, but in most other respects it is relatively unremarkable.

There is a pub, The Harrows on the northwest corner of the junction.
