A3068 Christchurch - Lymington
An abandoned section of the former A3068 at Hooper's Hill

The A3068 formed part of the west Hampshire coast road. Originally part of the B3054, it gained the A3068 number in the mid-1920s but was renumbered as part of the A337 in 1935.

The road started on the A35 on the edge of Christchurch, at the exact point where the A35 bypass now rejoins that road's original route. The A3068 headed eastwards through coastal settlements such as Highcliffe and Barton, although it never got particularly close to the coast itself. On the far edge of Barton the B3058 was met; this road now became the closest classified road to the sea whilst the A3068 continued along its easterly alignment.

A number of tight bends (some of which have since been removed) took the road through Leagreen to meet the B3058 again in Everton. The road then continued into Lymington. It climbed Stanford Hill to end at a triple-point in the town centre, where the A3069 Southampton Road and B3054 Queen Street also ended.
