The B3413 (former A3078) Fort Austin Avenue

The A3078 number was first allocated around 1930 to the Plymouth northern bypass, which was originally numbered B3246.

Starting on the A38 near Plympton, close to the present location of the Marsh Mills Interchange, the road headed west around Eggbuckland to pass Bowden Battery and continue on to Crownhill to cross the A386, at what was then a simple crossroads. Continuing west the road passes Woodland Fort before turning southwards to pass Kings Tamerton. The road ended on the A387 Wolseley Road in St Budeaux, near its two railway stations, one of which, Victoria Road, is named after our road.

The road was renumbered A374 in 1935 and then became the A38 in the 1960s after the Tamar Bridge was opened. In more recent years the A38 has been given an improved route to the south. The majority of the ex-A3078 is now numbered B3413 although the two ends are unclassified.
