The A627(M) is a continuation of the A663 forming a motorway link between the M62 and both Oldham and Rochdale. It has a short spur to the A664 at Slattocks, which may or may not have held the number A6138(M).
Its junction with the M62 is a traffic light controlled roundabout. When the A627(M) was built, provision was made for a flyover to be provided at a future date, but this has never happened. The land to the south of the roundabout where the support pillars for the flyover would have been is now a VOSA weighbridge station.
The junction numbers were confirmed in HA press release dated 9th Nov 2009.
