|Route outline (key)|
The B1026 was first allocated to a link road running just south of Colchester town centre between what was then the A12 and the A133. It was a popular route as it avoided the dogleg through the centre that the A12 took, and consequently by 1st April, 1924, it had been upgraded to the A1070.
