The A3036 (original A303) Albert Embankment

The original A303 was, like the other A30x roads, a short, urban A-road in south London.

The road started on the A302 Westminster Bridge Road in Lambeth and headed south past Lambeth Palace and along the Albert Embankment. At Vauxhall Bridge it turned away from the river to run along Wandsworth Road and past Clapham Junction station to end on the A3 to the east of central Wandsworth.

In the 1930s, it was decided that a distinct number for an alternative route to the A30 west of Andover was needed; this road was cobbled together out of a number of Class I and II roads and given the A303 number. The "old" A303 received one of the displaced numbers from Somerset, becoming the A3036. It remains this number to this day.
