Shelton is a junction in Shrewsbury.

The junction in 2006 before minor changes were made
The current layout of the junction dates from when the A5 ran along what is now the B4380. In 1991 a new bypass opened taking the A5 away from the urban area relegating this route to a local distributor. For the next 15 years the junction remained as it had done in A5 days with the national speed limit and dual carriageway reminiscent of a major trunk road junction. In 2006 the speed limit was reduced to 40 mph along with the number of lanes for through traffic from two to one. This is due to the A458 being the major route following the opening of the bypass.
