|Route outline (key)|
The A1138 is a short link road in the Lincolnshire town of Boston.
The road starts at traffic lights on the A16 town centre relief road. It then heads south along the residential South End, running along the bank of the River Witham for a short distance.
The road name changes to St John's Road which passes between a park and light industry. Presently the public road comes to an end at the boundary of the Port of Boston. The road, now unclassified, bears round to the right to reach the port's security checkpoint.
Originally unclassified, the road to the docks became the B1360 in the early 1920s, although it originally started on the A16 in the Market Place and headed south along South Street. This road became the A1138 in the 1970s, after which the northern half was declassified following the construction of the A16 relief road.
