Radar Corner is a crossroads where the A16 Crowland bypass meets the B1166.

The junction was previously a minor T-Junction off the B1166, but with the construction of the A16 Crowland bypass became a staggered crossroads.

However, the staggering of the crossroads has quite a small offset, and with the long straights on the A16 on the approach, there have been several accidents at the junction since its opening, prompting calls for a redesign. In 2020 it was announced that safety improvements would restrict turning and striaght over movements at this junction and the nearby A16/B1040 junction[1].

The junction is named after the former radar tower that occupied the site, which was removed to make way for the bypass.
