A3080 Bathwick Street, Bath
Bath Fire Station on Bathwick Street, formerly the A3080

The A3080 was formerly allocated to Bathwick Street in Bath, which provided a shortcut between the A4 and A36 via the Cleveland Bridge, avoiding the city centre.

In the 1922 Road Lists, it was an unclassified road, as the bridge was still tolled at this time. After the tolls were removed on 20th June 1927, it became an important shortcut that merited Class I status. It remains the case to this day, as it is the easternmost toll-free crossing between the A36 and the Batheaston bypass, which causes lengthy delays.

Today, the A3080 signs have disappeared, and the road is now ambiguously signed as a spur of either the A4 or A36, depending on the direction of travel; maps (and the local council) claim the latter.
