|Route outline (key)|
The road starts at one of the roundabouts that make up the A325/A331 GSJ and heads northwestwards along Hawley Lane, which starts off residential but then passes through an industrial estate. It goes under two bridges carrying the M3 and its slip roads for J4 and then feels almost rural for a short distance before we reach Hawley itself. We pass through the village and then cross the A30 at a roundabout.
After bypassing Frogmore the road enters Yateley, where it runs along Reading Road, a nod to the road's original number. It runs through the centre of town and then cross the green, which is lined with trees and so feels more rural than it is. After another suburb we enter open countryside proper - but not for long. The B3016 soon comes in from the left on the edge of the scattered village of Eversley and multiplexes with us to Eversley Cross, where it turns off to the right. After continuing through Eversley Centre there's a sharp bend to the right followed by a dead-straight wooded section which leads to the end of the road at a roundabout on the A327.
