|Route outline (key)|
The A3033 runs along Drove and Devonshire Roads in Weston-super-Mare, locally referred to as simply Drove Road. It runs in parallel to the A370, starting and finishing on it as well. It is regularly clogged with parked cars on either side of what is largely no more than a residential road.
The road was formerly a B-road, the B3127, and is in many ways rather pointless as an A-road. Although it does bypass the busy town centre and sea front, most traffic that would possibly use it has already been diverted down the unclassified Broadway and Winterstoke Road (or vice-versa), further to the east.
When inaugurated, the A3033 continued slightly further north across the railway line to end on the original A370 Locking Road; when that road was moved south onto its present route the A3033 was truncated to still end on it.
