B1438 Spur at Ufford
Snowdon Hill, Wickham Market

The B1438 follows the pre-bypass route of the A12 through Woodbridge and Wickham Market in Suffolk. The road came into existence when the Woodbridge bypass was built in the mid-1930s and was then extended north in the 1980s.

The road starts at a roundabout junction at the southwestern end of the A12 Woodbridge bypass and heads northeastwards into town. The original route of the road along Thoroughfare is now pedestrianised so the road follows a relief road to the east past the station, before regaining its old route at traffic lights.

After crossing the A1152 at traffic lights the road goes through Melton to a T-junction at the original northern end of the B1438. From here an 800-metre-long spur left provides a link to and from the southwestbound carriageway of the A12 whilst the mainline of the road TOTSOs right to pass through Ufford and reach a grade-separated junction connecting to the northeastbound carriageway of the A12.

After going through Pettistree we enter Wickham Market where we run through the centre of town along the High Street. Presently the B1078 comes in from the left and takes over the road ahead; the road layout here, with that road having to TOTSO, dates back to the A12 era.
