Route

A1071 at Bower House Tye

The A1071 is a local route in the south of Suffolk.

It starts on the A134 southeast of Sudbury and heads roughly eastwards along a winding road through open country. It bypasses Boxford and Hadleigh but goes through the centre of Hintlesham. After crossing the A14 without a junction in the outskirts of Ipswich it meets the A1214, with which it multiplexes into the town.

The A1214 turns off onto the northern bypass at traffic lights between the Rivers Orwell and Gipping. The A1071 reappears for a short stretch into the town centre before multiplexing along the inner ring road. After that turns off unexpectedly the final section of A1071 runs east along Woodbridge Road to meet the A1214 again, where it ends at what was a roundabout by the Ipswich Hospital.

History

A1071 running through the centre of Ipswich

The original line of A1071 was originally classified as the B1069, but was upgraded to Class I on 1st April, 1924. Coming into Ipswich, it carried along Hadleigh Road and ended on the A12 next to the River Gipping.

In 1934, the completion of the Ipswich Bypass diverted the A12 north of the town, with the A1071 taking over its old route. In 1935, the A45 took over a small section of this extension to meet and replace the former A139, which explains the slight discontinuity in the centre of Ipswich. When the A45 (now A14) western bypass was built the A1071 was rerouted to meet the A1214 (renumbered A12) away from the town centre, giving the road its current route.
