A1070 Link in Colchester
This article is about the first use of the A1070 in Colchester.

The now-unclassified Hythe Hill, Colchester, formerly the A1070

The A1070 was first allocated to the former B1026 in Colchester in the mid-1920s.

The road started on the A12 Crouch Street to the south of the town centre and headed east along St John's Street to pass what is now Colchester Town station. After running along Barrack Street it crossed the River Colne and then the railway line at Hythe station to end on the A133 Greenstead Road.

The road was downgraded again to Class II status in the 1940s as the B1422 but has now become an extension of the A134. However, this only applies to the middle section as the construction of the Southway has changed its alignment to the west and the river and railway line are now crossed further south.
