|Route outline (key)|
The B3061 was a short link road on the edge of Bournemouth.
It started on the A35 in Boscombe then went northwest along Ashley Road. It turned sharply left onto Holdenhurst Road before turning right onto Richmond Park Road to avoid turning into the B3062. At the far end of Richmond Park Road it met the B3063 and zigzagged across into Alma Road.
The entire road was upgraded to Class I status in the 1960s, becoming the A3049. There have been a few tweaks since along the route. The southernmost section is now part of the A35 as the centre of Boscombe is pedestrianised. Furthermore, part of Richmond Park Road has been severed by the building of the A338 Wessex Way and so the A3049 has been rerouted here.
