The A3073 is the short A-road from the A39 near West Grove to the eastern side of Bude, where it ends at the same place as the A3072 and an unclassified road continues on to the town centre. Originally numbered B3261, the road gained its current number in the 1930s, making it an early example of a reused number.
The adjoining section of A3072 between Bude and Stratton is shown as part of A3073 in some on-line mapping, though printed sources such as Ordnance Survey Explorer sheets and Philip's Atlases disagree.
