|Route outline (key)|
The A1129 is a short link road in the Old Fletton area of Peterborough.
The road starts at a mini-roundabout on the A605 in the shadow of the A1139 flyover. We head west and go under the flyover immediately before continuing along the largely residential Old Fletton High Street.
Two-thirds of the way along we cross a bridge over the East Coast Main Line before we end at traffic lights on the A15 London Road.
The present route of the A605 has been moved in this area to bypass Old Fletton; that road originally went along part of the High Street before turning right along Princes Road; there is no longer even a hint that the main road went that way. The remainder of the High Street was numbered B1092, which crossed the A15 to run along New Road back to the A605.
