M3 Chilworth - Coppermine - 11954.jpg
M3 Chilworth

An early Sunday morning, looking towards the southern terminus of the M3, where the A33 takes over. As can be seen, the motorway here is just D2; a reminder of the old days when it was the A33. Also note the white sign, which is actually on the motorway.

A30-A33

Heading east to the first DC after the 2 roads combined. This was the scene of much manic overtaking in the old days. It lasts about a mile, reduced to 1 lane e/bnd. The first of 9 bits of D2 before Camberley, 7 of which survive.

Moving west to beyond Basingstoke, this is the multiplex with the A33, just before they separate again. M3 is glimpsed in the gap in the trees on left, at J8

Approaching the parting of the ways. Note the long right turn lane, provided in a 1960's improvement.

The long right turn lane was an attempt to ease congestion, as queues for turning traffic were a major problem here.

Goodbye

This is the point where you felt you really were on the road to the west, having parted from the Southampton traffic. The sign reflects the original set up, whereby the A303 didn't start at the M3 but, further down at Micheldever rbt.

The northern end of this famous road is physically intact, although with some recent hatching. This is the approach to the A34, which comes down from the flyover across the n/bnd A33.

Looking east, the land has reverted to nature. M3 comes down slope behind the trees. Hard to believe this once teemed with traffic 24 hours a day, until July 1995
