|Route outline (key)|
Millbrook - Swaythling
The A3067 terminated on the then A36 close to where the Millbrook Roundabout stands today. Comparing maps suggests that the exact location is at the Wimpson Lane/Green Park Road junction, with Green Park Road being the original line of Redbridge Road.
The road then ran northwards up Wimpson Lane to the junction with Redbridge Hill, where it turned eastwards and ran towards Romsey Road just west of Winchester Road. From this point the A3067 then followed the present-day route of the A35 along Winchester Road to terminate on the A33 Bassett Avenue. However, as with the present day A35, there was also a longer spur of the A3067 continuing along Burgess Road across the A33 to end on the A335 High Road. The original number of the spur was B road and only became part of the A3067 later on.
Local authority boundaries have changed since A3067 days. Travelling westwards motorists left the County Borough of Southampton where Redbridge Hill met Wimpson Lane. This will explain why no 1930s cast iron columns can be found west of Redbridge Hill, although the area has changed significantly since then.
For unknown reasons (possibly to remove the multiplex along the A36 through Totton) the A35 bypassing Southampton was renumbered A3067 around 1940. It returned to its original number following the construction of Tebourba Way in 1953. In the late 1940s (possibly in 1946 when the corridor was trunked), the B3057 was absorbed into the A road route, creating a spur and removing the merger with the A33.
