M67 Junction 3

The San Antonio DP and the Dallas DP both recently showed pictures of their freeways, so here is a British motorway junction.

The A57 is the old turnpiked road from Lincoln to Liverpool by way of Worksop, Sheffield, the Snake Pass, Glossop, Hyde, Manchester and Warrington.

When a motorway was built, bypassing Hyde and Denton, because of the peculiarities of the UK road numbering system, it wasn't designated as M57 but M67. The Denton end of the M67 now links to the M60 which encircles Manchester. The Eastern end at Mottram Moor is a constant traffic jam. Plans to bypass Hollingworth and Tintwistle have been hotly debated for years.

See this Campaign website for more details.
