The half-built GSJ on the A511 - the road was planned to go under the bridge

In the early 1960s the number A511 made a brief appearance in the 'Co-driver: The AA Motorists Companion', published in 1965. This contains a chapter on motorways with strip maps of those built so far. Although the junctions are un-numbered, junction 27 of the M6 is shown to have a projected road heading east to Wigan and bypassing Standish.

The first half a mile of the road was built at the same time as the motorway junction (which was opened later than the rest of this strech of motorway) and thus bypassed Shevington Moor. Slip roads to a junction with the present day A5209 and B5206 were constructed but nothing else. This was the A511 to be, which would have continued on to meet the A49 near the A5106 junction.
