1939: THE 'OUTER RING ROAD'

Shortly before the outbreak of war in 1939, the Ministry of Transport proposed a scheme for the building of a bypass to connect BIRMINGHAM NEW ROAD with the A41, which could be extended to join STAFFORD ROAD via WOBASTON ROAD. This would have diverted a considerable amount of through traffic, but could have done little to relieve the congestion in the town centre.
