Approaching the A339 trumpet in Basingstoke, in the snow

The A3010 is one of the main roads in the New Town of Basingstoke. It is dualled for its entire length.

The road starts at a trumpet GSJ on the A339 Ringway East and heads west into the town centre. After all the slip roads meet the two carriageways split and are invisible from each other for a distance. It is not known whether this is due to rejected plans so common of a New Town. A minor road turns off to serve nowhere in particular and then a signalised roundabout is reached; its elongated shape suggests an unbuilt north-south road would have priority here and the A3010 would always have to give way.

The A3010 continues west through the middle of a shopping centre, which is accessible from it. The road goes through a tunnel under the car park and reaches the next roundabout soon afterwards. It seems that all roads planned to meet here have actually been built. Continuing west, the road now leaves the town centre behind and housing estates can be seen on both sides, one of which is served by traffic lights. After passing an out-of-town retail park a final roundabout is met, where the road ends on the A340 Ringway West. The road ahead is the B3400.
