Birmingham to Alcester
The A435 starts on the Birmingham Ring Road, A4540, heading South through the suburbs of Moseley and Kings Heath. A dual carriageway bypasses Wythall before crossing the M42 at junction 3. The road serves the new town of Redditch, yet avoids it to the East. 2 miles (3.2 km) before the village of Studley the road becomes single carriageway again passing through the heart of the village, meeting the A448 road at the other side. Alcester is bypassed to the West, meeting the A46 on the South side of the town. The next 21 miles (34 km) the road is concurrent with the A46.
Teddington to Cheltenham
At a roundabout near Teddington, the A435 resumes as a non primary route, passing through the centre of Cheltenham, continuing South to eventually cross the A417 and terminating in the centre of Cirencester
