St Marks Roundabout - Wilton

The A30 used to run down Estcourt Road and Rampart Road as far as Winchester Street, although you can't travel this section as it was severed by Churchill Way East (now the A36). OS maps of the era make it quite unclear where it went from here as they show a large tangle of roads in the city centre all classified as A-Roads. It is quite possible that it formed a One Way system like the one today, meaning that westbound traffic would head further south to Milford Street and then followed onto the High Street via New Canal, where it turned right to meet eastbound traffic, which could have gone along Silver Street, left onto Minster Street, right onto Blue Boar Row and onto Winchester Street. It would have met the A36 and A354/A388 Multiplex to the south, and the A345 to the north of Minster Street through the centre as well, although it is hard to tell.

Here after it gets easier to trace, with traffic for both the A30 and A36 then heading along Bridge Street and Fisherton Street to the West, to meet the A360 at a fork. The road then became Wilton Road, where it continued West to Park Wall Junction with the A3094 (then B3094)and then continued along Salisbury Road, where the A30 presumably TOTSOed to the left and the A36 carried on as the through route. This is where the A30 restarts once more.
