Route

The A328 used to be a useful road cutting the corner between the A30 and the A308, but since the M3 and M25 have been built, it's become very much a local road. Like the former A319 (now the B3121) in nearby Addlestone, it could well become a B road in the future; some of it already has.

Englefield Green - Old Windsor

Englefield Green

It starts off at a set of lights with the A30 at the top of Egham Hill next to Royal Holloway College, and heads north into Englefield Green, which has been extensively traffic-calmed so it doesn't seem like an A road at all. It then heads down the hill past Brunel University, and terminates on the A308 at the bottom, where it also meets the Thames. Runnymede - Magna Carta and all that - is also just around the corner.

History

The A328 originally ran on the same route it does today, but in 1935, it took over the route of the A3063, including a mile-long multiplex with the A308, to end on the A331 (now B470) in Datchet. However, the road through Datchet has since been downgraded to Class II status taking the later section of the A328 with it: it is now the B3021 which happens to be the original 1922 number of this section of road.
