'Warning - Recently Resurfaced Footway' sign
Just in case people in Winchester have forgotten what a recently resurfaced footway is like!
It has not technically been resurfaced; it has had a layer of loose chippings applied to the knackered surface underneath.

Taken from 1982 Collins Atlas of Britain. Part of the M3 shown as under construction to Winchester, and the middle bit of the M27. The remodelling of the A33 to M3 was to come much later. A303 shown as being dualled east of Bullington, with A30 following its original course.

A34 M3 freeflow Winchester
Here's a very simple way of making the the A34 freeflow onto the M3 without any major alterations to the existing road network. There's enough space in the A33/A34 split for a new road to be built through the middle and this simply joins the M3 at the North side of J9. The only alterations required are lengthening the existing North facing J9 slips to allow the new freeflow to be built beneath. Simple eh! No buildings need demolishing either.

Was the Trunk Road 8 numbering just for Hampshire C.C. or, a national list? The number referred to the A30 but was being used for the new road, before M3 came into use.

Winchester mileages (C) Graham Horn These mileages are carved into the stonework at the eastern end of the Guildhall on the Bargate and about 100 metres from King Alfred's statue. They may have been put there when the building was constructed in 1873.

Hockley Viaduct (C) Dr Simon Newman View from the Southern end.
Hockley Viaduct notice (C) Jim Champion At each end of the Hockley Viaduct there is a sign like this. Winchester City Council bought the land along the line after its closure in 1968, including the viaduct. Steps have been put in at the Five Bridges Road end of the viaduct and the (potentially) dangerous gaps in the viaduct wall have been fenced off making it 'safe' for public use.
Part of Hockley Viaduct (C) Mike Smith This former railway viaduct was opened in March 1891. It was part of the Didcot, Newbury & Southampton Railway, although the viaduct was built by the larger London & South Western Railway. Rail traffic ceased in 1965, and it now a footpath. The viaduct is now owned by Winchester City Council.
Otterbourne Road (C) Jim Champion This straight road follows the course of a Roman Road that led south out of Winchester (Venta Belgarum) to Bitterne (Clausentum) near Southampton. This stretch of the road is lined with tall beeches.
The Hocley Link road turns left ast this roundabout. Ahead is a slip road to the M3.
Winchester - Hockley Viaduct (C) Chris Talbot The viaduct, originally called the Twyford Viaduct, was built in the 1880s by the London and South Western Railway (LSWR). It provided a link over the River Itchen and water meadows, from the Didcot, Newbury and Southampton Railway (DNSR), to the LSWR's main line.

Junction of Quarry Road and Petersfield Road, Winchester Quarry Road is to the left, Petersfield Road to the right. Photographed from the top of East Hill. Note the magnificent wall, faced with flints.
M3 passes under B3420 When this road was the old Winchester By-pass there was a much more elegant bridge, built in the late 1930's at the same time as the 2 lane concrete road. The bridge achieved notoriety during the ensuing war when the pilot of a single engined fighter aircraft enjoyed the view you have here by flying under the Alresford Road (B3404). The epithet 'Spitfire Bridge' was henceforth applied to the old bridge, even though there is some doubt as to the aircraft type involved.
