A338 Bournemouth Spur Road

Since the late 1960s this dual carriageway has provided fast access to the Bournemouth conurbation from the A31 at Ringwood.

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.

End of A303-Start of A30(T)

Looking east. Local traffic for Micheldever or, round to A30 west, turned right here but, gave way to A30(T) Trunk road flows had priority in both directions. Sign for Micheldever visible. This area is hidden behind a rubble mound but, is well worth investigation, in view of its former status on the holiday road to the West.

Looking from the local turn across the A30 to the area behind the rubble mound. Kerbs still in place. Access to the new A303 is via the old, which is now the w/bnd slip. To Basingstoke via the old then, under the new and along another bit of old A30 as the e/bnd slip. A Porsche shot past seconds after this pic going east. I followed and on reaching a T junction, he had buried it in a tree opposite and was already out and on his mobile, unharmed but, trying to look cool. Snigger.

View from the A323 from Fleet, formerly the B3011, until about 1972. A T junction in the old days, to keep the A30 flowing.

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.

Approaching the rbt with the former pub in the middle, where the A325 starts. The A30 was freeflow in both directions in pre M3 days but now naturally, it has lights. Lower and upper left w/bnd and, upper right e/bnd. These cause huge peak hour queues in all directions.

Approaching the Hawley Roundabout (B3272 or A327 for those who dont like change and still living pre 1992) Simple. Blackwater, Camberley A30 (M3) thats all thats needed as this is a non primary road and is in Hampshire. Surrey seem to like to ignore the M3 and clog up local roads.

After a deviation along a rerouted A30, we return to the original bypass, although now u/c The wide bit on the right appeared in the 60's, implying a D2 was on its way. It never progressed beyond this though.

Another post M3 addition. Formerly, the wide S2 just widened into a D2, with right turn lanes just before the central reservation started. No hatching or cycle lanes either.

The start of the 1960's dual carriageway, looking like it's had the end cut off, which it was, when the rbt was tacked on, in the 80's.

In the last 2 or 3 years, this pointless hatching has appeared. the end of the D2 is well beyond the brow of the hill and never caused problems when it was a thundering trunk road.
