The B3214 is a short link road through the inner suburbs of Plymouth. It was originally part of the B3241 but, presumably due to its importance in getting traffic to the north of the city centre, was upgraded to become the A3081 by 1930. In more recent years, however, it was downgraded again; following the upgrading of the A374 Embankment Road to dual carriageway that route takes the majority of the traffic. Although the original number of our road had not been reused it was given a slightly different number instead.

The B3214 leaves the A374 at a GSJ alongside the River Plym and Laira Railway Depot and heads west through Laira. The road is S2 throughout and includes the "Laira narrows", which effectively take the road down to an S1 but with just enough room for two cars to pass each other. The road runs along a former inlet of the Plym and often used to flood before the Embankment was constructed. It ends at a junction with the B3250 and B3238 in Mutley.
