Route outline (key)
A1093 Martlesham - Kirton

Originally called the B1080, the Ipswich eastern bypass was soon renumbered the A1093.

The road is now unclassified. In 1982, the Orwell Bridge was built allowing traffic to cross the river without going into the centre of Ipswich. As part of the same scheme, the A1093's route was largely shadowed by a new dual carriageway numbered A12.

The A1093 started in the centre of Martlesham, on what was the A12. Indeed, the street name here, Felixstowe Road, hints at its ultimate destination. Its route is still relatively easy to follow, despite the fact that priorities have been changed since the road's downgrading. Road signage and layouts, of course, want you to use the A12.

The road passing the entrance to BT's laboratories is called Barrack Square, despite being road-shaped. The ex-A1093 passes through a business area before petering out as the A12 cuts into its route for a couple of hundred yards. However, the right of way still exists and is still labelled as the cycle route to Felixstowe.

The now-unclassified former A1093 near Bucklesham

As the A12 heads away, the former A1093 is once again accessible by motor vehicles (although again priorities have been changed). It goes through the tiny village of Brightwell and passes Bucklesham Primary School (which is isolated and half a mile from Bucklesham). Finally, the road bends to the right and ends at a LILO junction with the A14. For A14 traffic, this turn-off lies between junctions 58 and 59 and is simply signposted Kirton.

Back in the day, the A1093 ended here at a T-junction with the A45.
