B5043 Link in Newcastle
The A519 (former B5043) crossing the Lyme Brook

For some reason, the A519 did not make it all the way into the centre of Newcastle-under-Lyme but passed to the west, making a bee-line for the A525 along Friarswood Road. A519 traffic requiring the centre of town had to take the B5043, which left the A519 at the bottom of Clayton Road, crossed the Lyme Brook and climbed steeply to reach the A34 and the A527 at what is now the Grosvenor Roundabout.

Since Friarswood Road has a weight restriction, following the rebuilding of the bridge over the Lyme Brook in the 1990s, the A519 was rerouted over the entire length of the B5043 (which is the way most traffic went anyway) and Friarswood Road was declassified.
