A3205 Vauxhall – Wandsworth
A3205 Wandsworth

The A3205 runs through Battersea, on the south side of the River Thames, from a point close to Vauxhall Bridge to Wandsworth Bridge, following a route which is somewhat straighter than the course of the river itself.

The road starts at the south-west corner of the Vauxhall Cross gyratory on the A203, leaving the one-way system at traffic lights which also govern a junction with the A3036. The River Thames is met just afterwards where the road bends to the left to follow it for a few blocks. The river soon turns, following a more east-to-west course, but the A3205 maintains its south-westerly heading, passing the decommissioned Battersea Power Station (on the right) before going under the railway lines fanning out from Victoria station to cross the A3216 at traffic lights.

York Road, Wandsworth

The road continues along Battersea Park Road to reach another set of lights where the southbound A3220 comes in from the right and multiplexes with us for one block to the next set of lights where we meet the rest of the A3220, although we can't actually turn right to head north from here. The road then goes under the West London Line and passes the northern end of the A3207, which leads to Clapham Junction station on our left.

There's now an unexpected D2 section as far as York Gardens after which the road narrows again. We continue for a short distance to end at a roundabout on the south side of Wandsworth Bridge. The A3205 used to continue further along Old York Road and Ram Street to end on the A3 Wandsworth High Street but this stretch is now partly a section of the A217 and partly unclassified.
