|Route outline (key)|
The A3016 forms, together with a short section of the A325, a handy means of allowing traffic between the A31 (which bypasses Farnham to the south) and the A287 (with its connection to the M3) to avoid Farnham town centre.
The route begins in Hale at traffic lights on the A325, a kilometre north-west of that road's junction with the A31. Passing through Upper Hale, where we meet the B3005 (which was part of the original route of the A3016; until the 1970s today's Hale to Upper Hale section had been part of the B3367) and continue westward, leaving the suburbs of Farnham behind us and joining the A287 immediately north-west of Hog Hatch.
