The B5045 is a surprisingly important road for its classification and number. It is a main road into Newcastle-under-Lyme and forms part of the shortest route between Newcastle town centre and Hanley in Stoke-on-Trent. It is called Shelton New Road for its entire length, except for a short distance for eastbound traffic only (see below).

The B5045 starts just inside the Stoke-on-Trent city boundary, on a roundabout with the A52, and heads east. Starting narrow, it goes through a set of traffic lights with the unclassified Victoria Street and drops down to Cliff Vale where it widens out. It crosses the A500 with a short stretch of dual carriageway (although the speed limit is not increased). The layout of the GSJ is a south-facing limited-access junction, although both slip roads are two-way to allow access to other roads and industrial premises. The section of the B5045 west of the A500 is the signposted route of the A52 into Newcastle, avoiding the one-way system in Stoke-upon-Trent, although traffic out of Newcastle simply uses the A52.

After crossing the railway line, the B5045 meets another set of traffic lights and then begins to climb once again. It crosses the Trent & Mersey Canal, passes Shelton Cemetery and crosses the Caldon Canal in quick succession. At the top of the hill, it runs into a short one-way system. Eastbound traffic is routed onto Shearer Street which then meets the B5046 (which remains two-way) at a set of traffic lights, where traffic turns right to meet the A5006. Westbound traffic begins in the same place as the B5046 on a roundabout on the A5006 and proceeds along Shelton New Road from the beginning.
