|Route outline (key)|
The B3329 is a short, three-part route through Sandown on the Isle of Wight.
The first part starts at a mini-roundabout at the junction of Avenue Road and Broadway on the A3055 north of the town centre. From here it runs south along Avenue Road to reach another mini-roundabout close to the sea front.
The B3395 comes in from the left here while the B3329 continues southwestward, at two o'clock ahead, on its second leg (now one-way) along Sandown High Street and then Beachfield Road, eventually to arrive back on the A3055 Broadway at a point some 50 metres south of Sandown parish church.
The third leg of the B3329, bringing traffic into the town centre from a midway point along the A3055 Broadway, is the one-way eastbound Station Avenue, followed by a TOTSO left into Albert Road and then a right turn into a very short stretch of Victoria Road, before reaching the mini-roundabout junction with the B3395 mentioned at the end of the first paragraph.
Originally, Avenue Road and the High Street were Class I roads – sections, respectively, of the A3023 and A3020 – while the B3329 followed the direct route along Broadway. The Class I and II routes were swapped in the 1960s, by which time the former had become the A3055.
