The A12 was detrunked between Ipswich and just south of the Bascule Bridge, Lowestoft, early in 2001.

Since then it has been the responsibility of Suffolk County Council as local highway authority. It is for the council to take a view on the safety of the road and to consider and, if appropriate, bring forward, improvements. The Government have no plans to retrunk this section of the road.
