|Route outline (key)|
The B3039 is a short link road on the southern edge of Southampton town centre.
It starts on the A3025 to the wet of the Itchen Bridge and heads south along Royal Crescent Road before having to TOTSO right at a set of traffic lights onto Canute Road. It crosses a level crossing adjacent to the former Terminus station before ending at Queen's Park, on the A33 gyratory.
Originally the B3039 went from the A3025 Floating Bridge Road, along the length of Canute Road, around the 'Esplanade' along the edge of the Docks, and up the Western Esplande to end on the A36 to the north of Central Station. The re-routing of the A36 alongside the Docks split the route into two: the Western Esplanade was still B3039 until the West Quay shopping centre was built on top of it in the late 1990s. When the Itchen Bridge opened, the road was diverted along Royal Crescent Road and Saltmarsh Road to a roundabout at the end of it.
