A3056 Blackwater - Lake
This article is about the current route from Blackwater to Sandown.

.

The A3056 is one of the A-roads on the Isle of Wight. Originally the mainline of the A3020, it gained its current number in 1935.

The road starts by showing its history, at a TOTSO on the A3020 at Blackwater. The road heads eastwards, half way up a hill, before bearing sharply left to detour north to the village of Arreton. The road skirts the old village centre but then remains built-up for some distance further.

Newport Road, Apse Heath

The road becomes more rural after crossing the River Yar, although there is a zoo and garden centre hiding behind the hedge on the left. The road bears to the left to pass through Apse Heath before reaching the Sandown/Shanklin urban area. It heads east along Newport Road through the suburb of Lake to end on the A3055 island ring road at traffic lights.
