A302 Hyde Park Corner, London Elephant & Castle In two parts. 1. The London Inner Ring Road at Grosvenor Place to the Victoria one way system. 2. Victoria Street, half of Parliament Square and then Bridge Street (Westminster Bridge), followed by part of Westminster Bridge Road (which replaced part of the A23) and finally St George's Road (one way (north-west)) past St George's Cathedral, Southwark).
A303 M3 J8 south of Basingstoke A30, between Newcott and Rawridge A303 was previously used for the road from County Hall, London to Wandsworth, which was renumbered to the new A3036 so that the number could be used on the current route which replaced the old A3036, the original A3079, and parts of other roads.
A304 Fulham Fulham The western part of the Fulham Road. Originally continued east via what is now the A308 and the A4 to the A4 (now the A315).
A305 East Sheen Hanworth The road used to continue west of the A312 to the A308 in Sunbury via what is now the A316.
A306 Hammersmith Roehampton Hammersmith Bridge closed to motor traffic from April 2019

A308 Brompton Maidenhead Exists in three sections, one from Brompton to Chelsea, the second from Chelsea to north of Putney Bridge, and the third from the Robin Hood junction at Kingston Vale to Maidenhead. The section from the A4 to the A3220 was originally part of the A304, and the section from the A3220 to A219 was originally part of the A3217.

A311 Hampton Twickenham
A312 Hampton Harrow The road has been dubbed "The A three-one-queue" owing to frequent peak-hours' heavy congestion. Part of its course ran from Hatton to Harlington, London across where Heathrow Airport is instead of its present course past Cranford more directly to north-east Hayes and districts further north including Harrow. Its middle section is officially known as The Parkway[1] The deleted section is now Faggs Road, Hatton Road (sections were lost under the airport), A437, Station Road, Coldharbour Lane, and Yeading Lane.

A339 Alton Newbury
A340 Basingstoke Pangbourne
A341 Merley, (Poole) Red Hill Roundabout, Red Hill, Bournemouth A341 was previously used for the road from Winchester to Lopcombe Corner.

A342 Chippenham Andover Previously continued southeast to Winchester; this section was changed to the new A303 (now the B3402), an extension of the A3057 and the new B3420 (southern portion now part of the A272) as part of a renumbering due to the creation of the current A303.
A343 Newbury Lopcombe Corner, Winterslow
A344 Unused First used from Weyhill to Heytesbury. The section east of Stonehenge became part of the new A303 in 1934. The section just west of Stonehenge became a portion of the A360 by 1956, while the remainder was downgraded to the B390 in the 1970s.

Next used from the A303 at Stonehenge to the A360 at Airman's Corner. On 24 June 2013, the section from Stonehenge Bottom and Stonehenge was closed and grassed over. The remainder was downgraded to Class III as the C506.

A354 Salisbury Isle of Portland Previously ran through town centres of Dorchester and Weymouth. Rerouted in Upwey along new alignment.
A355 Amersham Windsor Originally ran from Sherborne to Durweston (near Blandford Forum). The route was chopped up and renumbered in the 1935 renumbering: the section from Sherborne to West Hill (near North Wooton) was absorbed by an extended A352 and the eastern end from Lyndlich to Durweston was handed over to the A357. The remaining seven mile section was deemed unworthy of a three-digit number, so it became the new A3030.
A356 Bower Hinton Grimstone
A357 A371, near Wincanton Blandford Forum
A358 Williton east of Colyford Route passes through Taunton and Chard in Somerset. Between Taunton and Ilminster, it provides the main link between the A303 and the M5. Route previously went southeast from Ilminster via what is now the A303 and the A3088 to Yeovil; the route was changed south of Ilminster to the current routing as part of a renumbering due to the creation of the current A303.
A359 Yeovil Nunney
A360 Devizes Salisbury
A361 Ilfracombe Kilsby The section between Beckhampton and the A4289 in Swindon was renumbered the A4361 to discourage through traffic, and the section through Swindon is now A4289, Wood Street, B4289, Shrivenham Road, Stratton Road, and B4006. Through traffic should use the A4, A346, and A419 between Beckhampton and Swindon. At 195 miles (314 km) is the longest 3 digit A road in the UK. Before the North Devon link road opened, it went along unclassified roads to South Molton, and then northeast via what is now the B3227.

A370 Bristol Near Brent Knoll
A371 Wincanton Weston-super-Mare
A372 Podimore, Yeovilton Bridgwater
A373 Honiton Cullompton Formerly continued north to Uffculme concurrent with the M5 and west to Tiverton via what is now A361, this section became part of its current routes when the freeway extension west of Tiverton was completed.

Earlier, the road was routed on what is now South View Road and Willand Road from Willand to Halberton, but this became part of the B3391, while the A373 was concurrent with the A38 north to Uffculme and west on the old A373 spur to Halberton as shown above. Earlier the road continued east to Charmouth via the current A35 (then the A35 went west via the current A3052). Originally, the A373 went west to Ilfracombe, but that section became part of an extended A361.
A374 Marsh Mills, Plymouth Trerulefoot Runs through Union Street, Plymouth. Originally followed the current A38 between these points (though one section became the B3413 when the A38 bypass was built), while the A38 followed the current route; these routings were swapped later, moving these routes to their current routes.

A375 Honiton Sidmouth
A376 Exeter Exmouth
A377 Exeter Barnstaple
A378 Langport Taunton A378 was previously used for the road from A379 south of Exeter to the A38 (now A3015) in Pinhoe (became part of rerouted A38 (now the north spur of the A379), and the rest was declassified (became the B3182 shortly after that, now Old Rydon Lane), and the northern section became part of the B3181 (now Clyst Road, Sidmouth Road, and Moor Lane).
A379 Kennford Plymouth Formerly ran through St. Marychurch in Torquay passing coach station. Rerouted along Babbacombe Road (original B3199). Concurrent with A3022 between Torquay and Paignton.

Originally ran from Halberton to Uffculme. Became a spur of the A373 in 1935 and is now declassified due to completion of the nearby M5 and A361. A small part east of M5 J27 is now part of the A38 as a "useless spur", as the A38 mainline was renumbered to B3181.

A398 Unused Ran between Taunton and South Molton. Became a portion of an extended A361 in the 1935 renumbering; the A361 was later rerouted along its current route from M5 J27, and the section from Taunton to South Molton became the B3227. A short section east of South Molton remains the A361.

A3011 Farnborough A331 Section east of A331 now the B3166. Earlier, the road continued south to east of Ash (this became part of the A321, and is now part of the B3411).
A3012 Unused Ran from the A3011 in North Camp to the A3013 (now A321) in Ash Vale. Downgraded in 1995 to the B3165 due to completion of the A331 through North Camp.
A3013 Farnborough Fleet Previously allocated to a road from Frimley Green to Ash Vale. Became a portion of a rerouted A321 in the 1970s. Now downgraded to the B3411 due to completion of the parallel A331.

A3021 East Cowes Newport
A3022 A380 at Edginswell Brixham Previously ran entire length of Torbay Ring Road but rerouted into Torquay (former A380) and along former A379 between Torquay and Paignton. Concurrent with A379 between Torquay and Paignton. Section past Paignton Zoo formerly part of A385.

An older A3022 existed on the Isle of Wight until 1935 when it became part of an extended A3054. It ran between Newport and Ryde, terminating at the pier.

A3023 Near Havant Hayling Island Number is out-of-zone as it was originally the B2149.

Originally ran on the Isle of Wight from Ryde to Sandown. Renumbered as an extension of the A3055 in 1935; the southernmost section is now the B3329.

A3024 Southampton M27 J8 Number also appeared in the 1974 AA Touring Guide to England for York Road running along the southern bank of the River Avon in Bristol. This is probably a typo for the A3034 which survived on York Road longer than originally thought. Now part of the A370.
A3025 Southampton Netley
A3026 Ludgershall North Tidworth
A3027 Staplegrove Taunton First used along Queen Street in Salisbury. Decommissioned probably by the 1960s (the number was in use elsewhere), but may have been renumbered as a spur of a nearby route well before then. Now entirely pedestrianized.

Next used in Taunton town center along Upper High Street, connecting the A38 to itself. Because it performed so well in taking traffic out of the center of Taunton, it became a portion of a rerouted A38.

A3028 Durrington A303 via Bulford
A3029 Bedminster Hotwells Originally ran between the A342 to the A345 south of Upavon. Renumbered as a spur of the A345, probably in 1935.

A3032 Hare Hatch Charvil Originally ran along Cornhill, South Street and Weymouth Avenue in Dorchester, cutting the corner between the then-A35 and A37. Renumbered as a portion of the A354 in 1935; now unclassified and partially pedestrianized.
A3033 Weston-super-Mare Uphill Originally the B3127, it previously terminated on the original A370 Locking Road. Although a bypass for the town centre, most traffic seeking to avoid the town centre uses the unclassified Winterstoke Road.

Originally ran along Southbroom Place (now Southbroom Road) in Devizes, cutting the corner between the A342 and A360 and just missing the A361. Now a portion of the A360, although it may have been a spur before this.

A3034 Unused Ran along York Road between the A36 and A38 in Bristol. Initially thought to have become an eastern extension of the A370 in 1935, a mid-1960s map shows the route as still A3034 and the 1974 AA Touring Guide to England shows the road as A3024 (a typo), meaning the route may have had its number until the 1970s; it is now likely that the change was in 1935, but was later reversed as some large scale OS maps from the 1940s and 1950s show the road as A370.

Number possibly later used along Queen Street in Maidenhead; possibly a typo for the A3064 or it may have been changed later on for some reason.

A3035 Southampton Southampton Common Originally ran from Axbridge to Cross. Renumbered as a spur of the A371 in the 1935 renumbering.
A3036 County Hall, London Wandsworth Formerly the A303.

A3037 Unused Ran from the A358 (later A303, now unclassified) to the A374 (later A358) in Ilminster. Declassified in 1988 due to completion of the Ilminster bypass and the declassification of the A303.
A3038 North Town, Taunton Rowbarton, Taunton Originally linked Ditton Street to High Street in Ilminster. Renumbered as a spur of the A3037 in the 1935 renumbering; now unclassified due to completion of the Ilminster bypass and resultant decommissioning of the A3037.
A3039 Bath Bath Originally ran along the western part of Chard Street and part of Victoria Place in Axminster. Became a spur of the A374 (later A358) and is now part of the A358 itself. May have been the shortest identified A road in the British Isles at just 174 ft (53 m).
A3040 Branksome Wallisdown Originally a loop off the A376 in Budleigh Salterton. Still marked as A3040 on a 1958 OS map, it was likely downgraded at the same time as the A376. Now part of an extended B3178.
A3041 Unused Ran from the Devonport seafront to the A386. Decommissioned when the present A38 opened: the southernmost section is unclassified, the route through Stoke is now the B3396 and the section from Milehouse to Hartley is now a rerouted A386.

A3043 Unused Ran from the A3042 (now the B3396) in Devonport to the A3041 (also now the B3396) in Stoke. Renumbered to A3049 for reasons unknown.
A3044 Staines upon Thames Harmondsworth Originally ran from Plymouth Street to Ford Street in Tavistock. Became a portion of the A390 when Ford Street was declassified.
A3045 Unused Loop off A390 in Lostwithiel. Decommissioned due to completion of the Lostwithiel bypass and is now part of the B3268.

Later reserved around 1970 for "existing parallel length of A329 when passed by the S.E. Reading to N.W. Wokingham relief road", but the number was not used.

A3046 Woking Chobham Originally ran from the A39 and A393 to the A394 northwest of Penryn. May have been renumbered as a spur of the A394 in 1935 (shown as such on a 1957 OS map) but is now part of a rerouted A39, forming a portion of the Penryn bypass.
A3047 Scorrier Camborne Originally ran along Clinton Road in Redruth, paralleling the original A393 (now B3300). Probably renumbered as a spur in 1935, but is now unclassified.
A3048 Unused Ran along St Thomas Road connecting the A388 to the then-A30 on the west side of Launceston Castle and was later extended along the old A30 to the A30 southern bypass when it was built in the 1940s. Now just a spur of the A388.
A3049 Fleetsbridge Boscombe Number first used on a road cutting the corner between the A3 and the A27 near Portsmouth; was the first A3xxx number allocated after the original 1922 classification.

Next used as an unexplained renumbering of the A3043 in Plymouth. Now part of the B3396.

A3050 Weybridge Hampton Court

A3063 Heston Hanworth Road, Whitton First used along an old routing of the A3 in Kingston when the A3 number was used for the Kingston bypass instead of the A239. The A239 would have been out of zone, so the A3063 number was used instead. Became the A308 (to the north) and A307 (to the south) by 1932.

Next used as an upgrade of the B3021 from Old Windsor to Datchet. Renumbered as an extension of the A328 in 1935, but has since gotten its old number as it was downgraded back to the B3021.

A3070 Unused Formerly connected the A35 southeast of Axminster with Lyme Regis via Uplyme; now downgraded to the southernmost section of the B3165.
A3071 Penzance St Just in Penwith Originally ran along Stony Lane in Axminster. Although the road was still shown as an unnumbered A road on maps into the 1960s, the number had been reused in Cornwall in 1935 with the original route becoming a spur of the A373 or A358 (former A374). Now downgraded to a portion of the B3261.

A3078 Probus St Mawes Originally used for the Plymouth northern bypass; originally the B3246. Renumbered A374 in 1935 and then became a portion of the A38 in the 1960s when the Tamar Bridge opened. Much of route now the B3413 after the A38 was rerouted, although the two ends are unclassified.
A3079 Okehampton Holsworthy A3079 was previously used for the road from A30 northeast to Ilminster, which became part of the then-new A303 when that route was created
A3080 Unused Ran along Bathwick Street in Bath, forming a shortcut between the A4 and A36. Now a spur of the A4 or A36, depending on direction of travel, although maps and the local council claim it as a spur of the A36.

A3082 St Blazey Fowey
A3083 Helston Lizard
A3084 Unused First used in south Cornwall between Par and Holmbush along the westernmost section of the B3271 (much of which became the A3082 except for this section), but it became a portion of the A3082 anyway in 1935.

Used a second time in 1937 as a temporary number for the northern section of the Exeter Bypass (renumbered from the A378), but it became the A38 in 1938 when it was rerouted (old A38 became the A3085).

Used a final time in 1975 between Redhills and Alphington on the western edge of Exeter. Declassified in the late 1970s when the A30 western bypass was built.

A3085 Unused Original routing of the A38 in Exeter before it was rerouted on top of the A3084. The northern section is now mostly the B3212 and much of the multiplex is now pedestrianized. The section from the River Exe to the northern edge of Alphington is now the A377, the route into Alphington itself is now the B3123 and the remainder unclassified. The southern end is now gone, lost under the A30 bypass.
A3086 Unused Location unknown, but since the A3095 was created in 1935 this clearly did exist. This may have been a short-lived road from Andover to Micheldever (upgrade of the B3049; became part of the A303).
A3087 Firepool, Taunton Rowbarton, Taunton Also known as the NIDR (Northern Inner Distributor Road). Previously allocated to a road from the A36 (now Tollgate Road) via Rampart Road to the A30 (now Winchester Street) in Salisbury.
A3088 Yeovil Stoke-sub-Hamdon

A3090 Near Winchester Near Totton Formerly part of the A31. Before this, the A3090 was allocated to the road from the A31 through Winchester to the A33; this became the B3040 and an extension of the B3047, and the A3090 was reused on the current route.
A3091 Unused Ran via Sussex Street and City Road from High Street (then the A272) to Hyde Street (then the A3090) in Winchester. Downgraded in 1995 due to completion of the M3 over Twyford Down; Sussex Street is now the southern end of the B3420 and City Road is the western end of the B3330.
