A3036 Waterloo - Wandsworth
This article is about the current A3036, which is a small road in London between Waterloo and Wandsworth, originally the A303.
For the original, a road between South Petherton, near Yeovil and Stonehenge, that became the modern A303, see A3036 (South Petherton - Stonehenge)

Albert Embankment

The A3036 is a secondary A-road in central London.

The road starts at traffic lights on the A302 at what used to be a roundabout near County Hall at the eastern end of Westminster Bridge. It heads south, passing St Thomas' Hospital on its right and Lambeth Palace on its left to reach the bank of the River Thames. The Houses of Parliament are clearly visible on the far side. The road crosses the A3203 at a roundabout before continuing south along the Albert Embankment. This moves away from the river to run alongside the railway line out of Waterloo station. It passes the MI6 building to reach the Vauxhall Cross gyratory. The line of the A3036 continues straight ahead - but this is northbound only; southbound traffic has to go around the other three sides of the rectangle and go under the railway line twice.

After extricating itself, the A3036 continues south along Wandsworth Road and soon goes under the railway line yet again. Following the road now becomes far more straightforward as it is now a straight road (with the occasional set of traffic lights) - and the road soon becomes residential. It bears round to the right very gradually and is heading southwestwards by the time it goes under the South London Line by Wandsworth Road station - and almost due westwards when the A3216 is crossed.

The A3036 continues westwards along Lavender Hill, which is fairly flat until the A3220 is crossed, after which it descends steeply as it passes through the main shopping area of Clapham Junction. The road now climbs St John's Hill, passing the entrance to Clapham Junction station before crossing the railway line heading south. A short distance further on the road reaches the gyratory at the junction of the A3 and A214. Logic would suggest the A3036 ends here - but according to maps the road follows the eastbound section of the gyratory to end at the original A3/A3036 fork on Huguenot Place.

The A3036 was originally numbered A303. However, that number was taken by a major road to the West Country on 1st April 1933 and so our road got the number that the new A303 had made redundant, the A3036.
