|Route outline (key)|
The B3323 is a hilly B-road on the Isle of Wight.
The road starts at a mini-roundabout by the church in Shorwell by turning off the B3399, which turns sharply here. The B3323 proceeds north via a hilly road across the centre of the island.
After going through Bowcome the road reaches Carisbrooke where it meets the B3401 at a mini-roundabout. The B3323 turns right here and is the dominant number in a multiplex along the High Street to another mini-roundabout where the B3401 turns right towards the castle and the B3323 continues ahead. The B3341 soon comes in from the right and cannons off our road (with through traffic on that road having to TOTSO twice).
We're now in the suburbs of Newport, although it's not obvious where they started, and we continue into the town centre. Here the road splits to form a one-way loop, with traffic in this direction forking left onto the High Street. Technically the road should TOTSO right at traffic lights into St James's Street but owing to a bus lane that is not possible and so traffic is forced to continue along the full length of the High Street to end at a long roundabout where the road ends on the A3020 and A3054.
Westbound traffic turns off the roundabout along East Street which runs briefly alongside the River Medina before bearing right. After passing Morrisons the road becomes one-way (with contraflow bus lane) and bears right into St James's Street. We must TOTSO left into Pyle Street, at the end of which the road becomes two-way once more as we rejoin the eastbound route of the B3323.
