|Route outline (key)|
The B5316 ran on the northern side of what is now Telford, Shropshire, from Oakengates Town Centre to what is now the junction between A442 and B5061 near Ketley Bank, or putting it another way, linking between Watling Street and the Holyhead Road.
It, along with many of the routes in the area, appears to have been downgraded in the early 1980s - it appears as an unlabelled B-road on the 1980 edition of the relevant Landranger map, but is marked as an unclassified route in the 1986 edition.
Today it still forms the major access route to Oakengates Town Centre, but the town is far less important than before.
