The A3046' is a short A-road in west Surrey. Originally part of the B383, it got its present number towards the end of the 20th century.
It starts right in the middle of Woking Town Centre, on a busy T-Junction with the A320. When it was still the B383, it was possible to go straight across into almost Woking High Street, but a large car park now stops it. We then immediately cross the Basingstoke Canal and head North West. The first mile is a pretty urban drive through Horsell, until we come to a rather distorted T-Junction with the A245 (formerly B384). We then quickly reach a roundabout with a road towards Knaphill. Bizarrely, this is the best junction along the route of the road.
The road then continues across Horsell Common, of The War of the Worlds fame (that's HG Wells's book, not either of the two films). Eventually we reach Chobham, where we have to turn right at a mini-roundabout at the southern end of the High Street, and then reach the A319 very soon, at another mini-roundabout at the other end. Go left towards Lightwater and straight ahead towards Addlestone. Just visible from this junction is the A319's junction with our previous alias, the B383 towards Sunningdale.
