The art in the centre of the roundabout

Vulcan Road Island is located to the southeast of Wolverhampton on A463 Black Country Route, and was constructed in the late 1980s.

It is a flat roundabout junction, functioning solely to allow access to the surrounding industrial areas to the south of the junction, and the residential area to the north. It is easily recognisable as the stadium of Bilston Town FC is immediately to the north of the junction. The stadium was fitted with large nets soon after the junction opened due to footballs being regularly kicked out of the ground and onto the road.

Despite the name of the junction, it does not connect directly with U121 Vulcan Road itself, but is instead connected via a short spur road that oddly does not appear to share Vulcan Road's Class III status.
