Popham - Sutton Scotney

The old A30/A303 roundabout near Micheldever Station have been blocked off by rubble, but the kerb remains in place

As is probably obvious to any member of SABRE, or in fact most people if you've read the previous sections, is that the A30 was the main trunk route to the South West, not the A303. As a result, the section between the M3 and the junction for Popham airfield was the A30, albeit single carriageway before the coming of the M3, although the dualled section opened as the A30. It left what is now the A303 at the junction for Popham Airfield before heading southwest to meet the A303 at Micheldever Stations West Facing Sliproads. This was a fork junction before it was converted into an elongated roundabout and then finally a junction for the A303 to Andover.

The A30 headed south west from here on a relatively straight section of single carriageway before entering Sutton Scotney, where it met the former route of the A34 in the pre-bypass days. The A30 multiplexed with the A34 along Oxford Road before turning right and heading down Stockbridge road, where it meets the new A30 on Bypass Road, which forms a short S2 northern bypass of the village.
