|Route outline (key)|
The non-primary A336 is a fairly short road connecting the small town of Totton (in practice, if not officially, a western suburb of Southampton) to Cadnam and the northern part of the New Forest National Park.
The route starts at a roundabout in the middle of Totton, where the northwest-bound A36 TOTSOs right. The A336 heads westward for a mile and a half through a continuously residential zone before crossing the A326 Totton bypass (at the last of four roundabouts) just before entering the village of Netley Marsh. From here it's a pleasant enough drive through the countryside for a further two and a half miles before we reach the roundabout junction with the A31 and A337 in Cadnam which marks the road's end.
The A336 was downgraded in the mid-1990s (becoming the B3080), presumably in connection with the opening of the A326 – M27 link, but it has since regained its Class I status. The road is no longer trunk or primary, however.
