A3085 Exeter - Shillingford Abbot

The A3085 was created in 1938 when the A38 was routed onto the Exeter Bypass, created by portions of the A378 and some new construction. It followed the old A38 route into the city centre and back out the other side.

The B3212 (former A3085) by Polsloe Bridge station

Starting at the northern end of the A38 bypass the A3085 headed west along Pinhoe Road. It went under the Exmouth Branch Line at Polsloe Bridge station and then bore left on meeting the unclassified Old Tiverton Road. It now ran along Sidwell Street into the city centre.

The A30 came in along Paris Street and became the dominant number in a multiplex along the High Street, crossing the A377 and the River Exe before the two roads split on the far side. The A3085 regained its number to head south along Alphington Street into Alphington itself. The A379 turned off along Dawlish Road whilst the A3085 continued along Chudleigh Road. It ended a short distance further on back on the A38.

Today, following postwar rebuilding of the city and the creation of the M5 and the A30 western bypass, most of the route has been further downgraded. The northern section is now mostly the B3212 and most of the multiplex is now pedestrianised. From the River Exe to the northern edge of Alphington the road is now the mainline of the A377, into Alphington itself is the B3123 and the remainder of the route is unclassified. The southern end of the A3085 is now lost under the A30 bypass.
