The B3043 is a short B-road to the north of Southampton.
It starts at a set of traffic lights at the western end of the A335. All three roads meeting here have different numbers (the third is unclassified), which can be explained by the fact that the "main" road here was the original line of the A33 (later moved to the bypass, which has since been upgraded to become the M3).
The B3043 heads north along the ex-A33 for half a mile. It crosses a railway line by Chandler's Ford station before turning left at a roundabout immediately afterwards; this marks the road's original southern end. It continues northwestwards along Hursley Road, acknowledging its final destination.
