|This article is about the current B3271 in Saltash.
For the original B3271 from St Blazey to Fowey, see B3271 (St Blazey - Fowey)
The B3271 is largely the original, pre-bypass route of the A38 (earlier the A374 and before that the A387) through the town of Saltash in Cornwall.
The westernmost 90 metres or so of the old road is now one-way westbound only onto the A38, with a new 190-metre chord (strictly speaking, a short branch of the A38) bringing eastbound traffic in from the bypass. At its eastern terminus the B3271 connects with the A38 at a light-controlled layout immediately adjacent to the Cornish end of the Tamar Bridge.
A 670-metre branch from Burraton Cross follows the former route of the A388 northwestward as far as Saltash services on the bypass.
