The A370 (former A3034) York Road

In the original 1922 road numbering, the A3034 number was allocated to Bristol (Bath Bridge - Bedminster Bridge), placing it on the edge of the city centre. The road ran along York Road between two bridges along the south bank of the River Avon New Cut. Both of these bridges have since had a second built alongside to turn the junction into a roundabout; the outer two bridges are the originals and mark the ends of the A3034.

The eastern end of the road was on the A36 and the western end on the A38. The road opposite here was the A370 and it was previously believed that in 1935 the A3034 became an eastwards extension of that road. However, the OS 1:10560 sheet from the mid 1960s still labels York Road as the A3034, and the 1974 AA Touring Guide to England labels it as the A3024 which is now believed to be a misprint, suggesting that the number stayed current until the 1970s, or perhaps that it was re-instated when the A370 moved over to Clarence Road, although the OS sheets do not show this until the 1980s.
