Morden Hall - Rosehill
Another short road - starts at a roundabout on the A24 outside the National Trust owned Morden Hall Park. Runs, mostly as urban dual carriageway primary route via a roundabout with the A239, then south to a gyratory on the A217 where we also meet the dual carriageway B278.
The northern section is Morden Hall Road, and is part single carriageway, the southern dual carriageway section is St Helier Avenus and is very straight, apart from the section by the roundabout with the A239. The onward road is the B2230, also very straight, suggesting that this is a Roman alignment.
The A297 was not in the original 1922 Road Lists, but appeared when the A217 Sutton Bypass was built. It was allocated to the old road through the town, and then along St Helier Avenue to take over the former M276. The section through Sutton has since been downgraded to the B2230.
