|Route outline (key)|
The A1144 is a short link road in the Suffolk town of Lowestoft.
The road starts at a roundabout on the A1117 Lowestoft bypass in the Normanston area of town. It heads east along Normanston Drive, which is partially built-up. The road crosses a dismantled railway line (now a footpath) before passing the cemetery to cross a roundabout. On the far side the road name changes to St Peter's Street, which is more built-up. There is a slight detour to the north to meet the B1074 at traffic lights before the road ends at a roundabout on the A12 town-centre loop.
Originally the road between the A1117 on its original line through Oulton Broad and the A12 in Lowestoft town centre was numbered B1130. The entire road was renumbered A1144 in the 1960s. However, the western section of the road has been taken over by the A1117 as part of its bypass of Oulton, thus truncating the A1144 to start in Normanston.
