I lived just off Four Pounds as a young 'un. It was always a single carriageway road then, although the bed for the extra carriageway was laid at the same time. They turned it into a dual carriageway some years after we left the area.

Does anyone know why the Earlsdon Avenue bridge across the railway is so much wider than the existing road width? A former CCC worker has suggested to me that it was designed thus in anticipation of construction of a "middle ring road" which included Four Pounds Avenue (hence that being dualled)

^^ interesting and quite believable. I read a book recently that talked about plans for new suburbs to be linked by dual carriageways to older suburbs and the city centre, but the plans never fully happened (I think Canley was one, hence the dual carriageways up there). Discussion here (Not much, but similar speculation).

There were plans for an 'outer' ring road as Rob details here. However it was much further out of the city.

The M6/A46/A5 largely follow the line of the "Outer Ring Road". The missing North West section and a new southern bypass for the A45 ("southern bypass") is being discussed by the council on Tuesday! Peter.

Here's a couple of interesting images dated 29th August 1973 showing Ring Road development and the Ringway Queens section that's just being changed again as part of the Friarsgate project. You can see the area where they cleared Stoneleigh Terrace, they used as a ramp to dig out the underpass. Sad Also visible are the foundations going in for the Tax Offices. Were they the brick 'sheds' from what was Parkside Garage on the very left? I can remember they were there before the whole Tax Office area was cleared in the '80's/'90's, certainly the backs of them were visible from Grosvenor Road. Edited by member, 21st Jan 2017 7:13 am

My friend Steve and I did 4 circuits of the ring road with my Go-Pro running. Above are a couple of frames going under the Warwick Road.
