||Norwich - Tuckswood
The Norfolk A1056 is part of a radial route running out of Norwich. Originally part of the A140, the road gained its current number when the A140 was rerouted onto the outer ring road in the 1990s.
Starting at a signalised fork on the A11 opposite the former Norfolk and Norwich Hospital (now flats) just outside the inner ring road, it heads south-south-westwards along Ipswich Road and ends after just over half a mile further on at another set of traffic lights on the city's outer ring road. Ahead, and also to the right, is the A140, while to the left is the A146.
