|Route outline (key)|
The B3037 is a semi-rural B-road in southern Hampshire.
It starts by branching off the B2177 in Lower Upham, north of Bishop's Waltham. The first section is fairly rural, until we reach Fair Oak. There's a small multiplex with the B3354 south through the town before we split off again to the right at a traffic-light-controlled crossroads.
There's a brief single-carriageway bypass around the centre of Bishopstoke before we cross the Itchen flood plain and finish near Eastleigh station. To the left, right and straight ahead, the somewhat schizophrenic A335. This is explained by the fact that the B3037 used to continue straight on to end on the then-A33 in Chandler's Ford; this was upgraded to A-road status to serve the M3.
