This also used to be the boundary of Hampshire and Dorset, before Bournemouth was moved into Dorset in The A immediately has a sharp right-hand bend and runs beside Bournemouth Traincare depot. This section of the road is built over the old Bournemouth West railway station and whilst wide enough for dual carriageway, starts off as single carriageway.

After the first junction, with the B, the road becomes dual carriageway. Mark's Roundabout, before separating in a north-easterly direction to follow the entire length of the River Bourne. It has a grade-separated junction with the main A road and then passes through the town of Tidworth. From there the road travels north to Collingbourne Ducis , where it twists through the village around the church to a mini-roundabout.

It turns right to continue northwards alongside the Bourne through another narrow stretch at Collingbourne Kingston to another mini-roundabout before again heading north. Near Burbage the continued route north to Swindon is designated A , the A turning off to the right at a roundabout and heading east then north-east and crossing the border into Berkshire. It passes through the town of Hungerford , where it meets the A4 road to Marlborough and Newbury.

It meets the M4 motorway at junction 14, passes through the village of Great Shefford and crosses into Oxfordshire. It terminates at its junction with the A road near Bessels Leigh , 6 miles 9.

The section of A between the A31 dual carriageway at Ringwood and Salisbury's A36 Churchill Way is built on a substandard single carriageway alignment with multiple sharp bends as the road follows the line of the River Avon. This section of the road has a poor safety record; it is heavily trafficked and the resulting risky overtaking is responsible for a number of head-on collisions.
