From the M4 motorway Junction 42, just east of Swansea, it travels west along the Fabian way towards Swansea where it turns to a northwesterly direction towards the M4 motorway junction 47 at Penllergaer after which the route is shared with the A48 along Swansea Road, Bryntirion Road, Bolgoed Road to Pontarddulais.

Carmarthenshire

After Pontarddulais, the route continues along Heol Fforest and Carmarthen Road. The A483 diverges from the A48 at the final M4 motorway junction, Junction 49, where it continues via Ammanford, Llandeilo and Llandovery.

The A483 continues through Llanwrtyd Wells, Builth Wells (where it crosses with the A470) and Llandrindod Wells. It then reaches Newtown where it passes under the Cambrian Line at the Dolfor Road Railway Bridge. This bridge, being 13' 3" has been hit by high vehicles on many it occasions. The road then continues to Welshpool before entering England.

hropshire

It continues as a bypass to Oswestry before diving back into Wales.
