The route of the second version of B5060 came into being in around 1990. It was originally just the stretch between M54 junction 4 and A5, with the sections to the north to Muxton and A518 being opened soon afterwards.

The route was planned as one of Telford's Secondary Distributor network, which were to be dual-carriageways whose junctions were to be mostly flat roundabouts. This legacy has meant that the route has wide side reservations to enable widening to the planned dual carriageways, and also the vast majority of the bridges on the route are sufficiently wide to allow for that dualling.

This incarnation of B5060 was renumbered as A4640 in 2008. It remains this number.
