Route outline (key)
B3116 Keynsham - Marksbury
B3116 Branch in Keynsham

Historically, the B3116 connected the A4 (formerly A36) in Keynsham to the A39 (formerly A368) at Marksbury. However, with the construction of the Keynsham Bypass in the 1970s, it now does even more!

Approaching Keynsham

We start in Keynsham town centre, with a mini-roundabout on the un-signed A4175, which has come in on the former A4, and now heads off on its original route to Bitton and Eastern Bristol. We then run down the High Street, before veering left across the River Chew and up Bath Hill. At the top Bath Road, the B3116 spur turns left, and links back to the A4, so completing that road's original route.

However, turning right brings us onto the original B3116, which still stretches south on the hillside above the river. The road, Wellsway, passes housing estates on the left and a single row of properties on the right, with breaks to give a view across the valley. Soon the town is behind us, and after a short blast through fields we pass briefly through Burnett. In the past, traffic could be queued back this far to get onto the A39 beyond. However, since the traffic lights were installed (it used to be give way, with most traffic turning right), things have improved somewhat.
