|Route outline (key)|
The B3018 is a largely rural B-road in east Berkshire.
The road starts on the A329 in the middle of Bracknell, and manages to fight its way out of the town, heading north west through plenty of twists and turns.
There is a brief multiplex along the B3034 to the east of Binfield before the road crosses a bridge over the M4. At the west end of an unclassified road called The Straight Mile, the B3018 has to TOTSO right. Eventually it gets to Twyford where there's a TOTSO with the A321.
The B3018 originally started on the A30 in Bagshot. This section up to the A329 in Bracknell was upgraded as an extension of the A322 around 1933, and received a major upgrade to become a dual-carriageway primary route around 1969.
The road originally ended at the junction of Station Road and Waltham Road in Twyford. In the late 1920s, the level crossing at Twyford station was closed, so traffic on the A321 had to divert via Waltham Road, hence the TOTSO that's there today.
