The A3604 is a link road connecting the A36 and A4 across the River Avon, via the Windsor Bridge between Twerton and Weston to the west of Bath City Centre. Apart from the two terminal junctions, the only other junctions are with small industrial estate roads around the Gasometer site.
The current bridge was built in the 1980s to replace an older structure. It is three lanes wide (allowing for the turning lanes), and normally full of stationary traffic on the northbound side waiting at the lights for the A4! The road was classified around the time that the new bridge was built and its number is widely considered to have been chosen because the road links the 36 and 04 giving A3604.
