NAMED AFTER
Of the 7 sections of the A4150 this is the odd one out. It is named after the patron saint of Wales rather than any local church. This is due to the city council noticing that the patron saints of England, Scotland and Ireland all had sections named after them. The original planned name was ST. JAMES'S, whose namesake church and square were demolished to construct the ST. DAVID'S section and HORSELEY FIELDS junction.

JUNCTIONS
CLOCKWISE
  • There is an exit to HORSELEY FIELDS (A454). It is a simple fork junction giving Eastbound access.

OF NOTE
During construction of the temporary bus station just to the West of the section in 1980, a start was made on the road. However, this roadway was never brought into use and was removed in order for the present sunken route to be constructed.

During 2011, there was major reconstruction of the section to add access to and from the redeveloped bus station, which included a total realignment of the anticlockwise carriageway into the reserved space for the unbuilt main carriageway. The section now features three carriageways, with an extra clockwise carriageway reserved for buses heading for the bus station to the West of the anticlockwise carriageway.
