|Route outline (key)|
The road started on the A5 after that crossed the Welsh Bridge and crossed into Mardol. The A5013 then headed eastward along Smithfield Road alongside the River Severn. It continued to within sight of the castle, ending on the A49 which originally crossed from Castle Gates into Chester Street.
Although the road has retained Class I status the A5013 number is now defunct; given that the present A5013 came into being in 1935 it is likely that the Shrewsbury incarnation of that road disappeared at the same time, with the road presumably becoming a spur of the A5 or A49. The road is now either the eastern end of the A458 or A488 depending on which map you look at.
