IS02: PENN ROAD ISLAND

Penn Road Island is a junction at the south-western corner of the Wolverhampton Inner Ring Road, and is the primary access route into the city centre from A449 and Kidderminster, as well as access to M5 via junctions 4 and 6.

It was the earliest roundabout junction constructed on the Inner Ring Road, and has provision for grade-separation for traffic along A4150. The sunken area in the centre of the roundabout is used both as a pedestrian crossing, and contains formal gardens and a skate park.

The junction was the subject of a £2m improvement in 2010, which has seen changes to the direct access from A4150 westbound to A449 southbound.
