Route

Leaving Abingdon

The A4183 is a radial of Abingdon, forming a link between the town centre and the A34 bypass to the north along the original line of that road.

The A4183 begins at traffic lights on the A415 one-way system on the northern edge of Abingdon town centre. It leaves the junction heading in a North Easterly direction and almost immediately passes through another set of traffic lights and then a mini roundabout.

After crossing the mini roundabout, a minor access road to houses along the route runs alongside the A4183 for around mile.It is likely these were provided when this route was part of the A34, which was a far more busy and important route. The road continues along Oxford Road and reaches a roundabout on the edge of town, where it meets Dunmore Road and Twelve Acre Drive, which are distributor roads around the perimeter of local housing estates.

The road then continues across the fields for a few hundred yards to a half diamond interchange at the A34, with sliproads facing East only (i.e. in the direction of Oxford), where the A4183 terminates. The old line of the A34 simply continues ahead but is now unclassified.

History

The A4183 is part of the former route of the A34 through Abingdon, as betrayed by the large distance between many houses and the road, as well as access roads provided to these houses. It was therefore probably was created when the A34 Abingdon Bypass opened in September 1973. In any case, the A4183 number was in place by 1986, and can be seen on mapping from that period.
