In its short length it passes through no fewer than six roundabouts.
The route runs from the A143 at Bradwell, close to where a former dual carriageway, where few exist along the A143, which during the construction of the B1534 was removed in favour of a roundabout. It has a junction with the A143 to Gorleston and Bury St Edmunds, and also with New Road which leads to Belton and Burgh Castle.
The road then follows for 1.2 miles, passing 4 roundabouts, where it meets the A47 (formerly A12) at Beaufort Way where the road heads north to Great Yarmouth and Norwich, and south along the former route of the A12 to Lowestoft and London. The route has a Travelodge and Toby Carvery at the roundabout, and also Beacon Park Business Park which is primarily the main purpose for the route, plus the future expansion of Bluebell Meadow housing estate and what was supposed to be a Sainsbury's superstore and retail park, but this was later cancelled and will now become part of Bluebell Meadow.
The route opened in December 2015, but was scrutinised because of the lack of signage on the A12 end of the route, where there is no signage for the route whatsoever, apart from a sticker added to the South bound carriageway before the Links Road roundabout, which was added in November 2017, 2 years after its opening to show the A143 as being in that direction.
In March 2016, it was also revealed that Tarmac, who laid the tarmac on the B1534 had used a bad grade of asphalt on several roundabouts and stretches of the route, and was later in 2017 removed and relaid by Tarmac as the gradient was not standard enough for a road of its standard.
