|Route outline (key)|
The original A1019 did not last long. Its route was from the A135 (now B1352) on the western edge of Harwich northwards to reach the quay at Parkeston. In 1935, the A604 was extended east to the Essex coast and took over the whole length of the A1019, making the number redundant.
In more recent years, the A604 was cut back again (eventually disappearing completely) and the ex-A1019 became part of - and then all of - the A136. With the building of the A120 Dovercourt bypass, the southern section of the ex-A1019 was downgraded and the Parkeston village bypass may have downgraded even more (although maps are not certain on this aspect).
