Junctions related to the A306

Red Rover is the junction of the A205 South Circular Road and A306 in Barnes, south-west London. The B306 terminates here, forming a rare instance of same-numbered A- and B- roads meeting each other. It is one of several strategically important junctions in this part of the city which are significantly under-developed considering their importance to traffic. In this case, the A306 from the south acts as a spur of the A3 from Portsmouth, linking places south-west of London to areas like Hammersmith west of the city.

It is a five-armed signalised junction, notable for the complex eastern side. There is an additional link between the B306 and A205, forming a one-way loop that is used to U-turn eastbound traffic bound for the A306 south. The result is that A205 eastbound to A306 westbound involves passing through the main crossroads of the junction twice from opposite directions.

The flats in the corner replaced a pub. Initially called The Railway Tavern, it was renamed Red Rover in 1972.
