The M67 is a funny little motorway that starts at the new M60, previously the M66 in Denton, East Manchester. It proceeds a few miles then just ends at the A628 road to Barnsley.
I don't really know why the M67 is there, apart from to fool drivers into thinking they have found an excellent alternative to the M62 for Transpennine journeys. Like me.
It feels like a real motorway until it just ends. Does that count?
If you are on the Macclesfield Canal, which the M67 crosses, it looks pretty impressive from down there, as the whole section of canal was replaced with a nice new towpath and everything.
I am still not sure of the impact of the M60 and all the changes that that has caused. I think the M67 survived intact. That's all the 4 or 5 miles of it.
Well, one end of it connects to the M60 (old M66) which would give good access to all points out of Manchester. At the other end, errm well its just the A628 to Barnsley. That's all.
Mad stuff. I once almost drove on it when I had my Viva in 1988, but I swore I would drive to Manchester without touching a motorway, so I stayed on the A628. Later on, when delivering cars for a living (good job, poor pay) I had to go back to Goole from south Manchester, possibly Stockport, and thought I would give the M67/A628 combination a try. Well, the M67 was nice, but all too short, as the slow progress of the A628 was heart wrenching. The scenery would have been nice were it not about 4pm on a winter Friday evening, so all was dark. But I felt the scenery must be nice.
