Wolverhampton
WOLVERHAMPTON (/ˌwʊlvərˈhæmptən/ ( listen )) is a city and metropolitan borough in the West Midlands , England. At the 2011 census, it had a population of 249,470. The demonym for people from the city is "Wulfrunian". Historically part of Staffordshire , the city is named after Wulfrun , who founded the town in 985, from the Anglo-Saxon _Wulfrūnehēantūn_ ("Wulfrūn's high or principal enclosure or farm"). Prior to the Norman Conquest, the area's name appears only as variants of _Heantune_ or _Hamtun_, the prefix _Wulfrun_ or similar appearing in 1070 and thereafter. Alternatively, the city may have earned its original name from _Wulfereēantūn_ ("Wulfhere\'s high or principal enclosure or farm") after the Mercian King, who tradition tells us established an abbey in 659, though no evidence of an abbey has been found. The variation _Wolveren Hampton_ is seen in medieval records, e.g. in 1381

Dual Carriageway
A DUAL CARRIAGEWAY ( British English ) or DIVIDED HIGHWAY (American English ) is a class of highway with carriageways for traffic travelling in opposite directions separated by a central reservation . Roads with two or more carriageways which are designed to higher standards with controlled access are generally classed as motorways , freeways , etc., rather than dual carriageways. A road without a central reservation is a single carriageway regardless of the number of lanes. Dual carriageways have improved road traffic safety over single carriageways and typically have higher speed limits as a result. In some places, express lanes and local/collector lanes are used within a local-express-lane system to provide more capacity and to smooth traffic flows for longer-distance travel
