A6143 Link in Manchester
Passing the Air and Space Gallery

The A6143 is a short, out-of-zone A-road on the edge of Manchester city centre. It runs along the former line of the A57 and presumably got its present number when that road was moved onto the Mancunian Way (the present A57(M)) in 1967.

The route starts on the A6042 Trinity Way at traffic lights (the A6143 was rerouted slightly when this was built; it originally started slightly to the south on the A57). It heads northeast along Water Street and heads under a railway line, on the far side of which there's a set of traffic lights where the B5225 continues ahead along Water Street whilst the A6143 TOTSOs right onto Liverpool Road.

The road now runs along the entire length of Liverpool Road, with the Beetham Tower directly ahead. The first buildings on the left are the former Liverpool Road railway station, one of the world's oldest and now part of the Museum of Science and Industry. We continue on past other museum buildings, skirting the "urban heritage park" of Castlefield. The last museum building is the Air and Space Gallery, housed in a former market hall, after which we continue on past a similar building to the foot of the Beetham Tower, and here the route ends at traffic lights on the A56 Deansgate.
