Route

Worsley Braided Interchange

The A666(M) is an unsigned motorway between Bolton and Salford and is part of the Worsley Braided Interchange. The M61 runs on the outer carriageways of this interchange and connects directly to the A580.

The authorities have gone to great lengths to maintain the secrecy of the route number; there is not a single Driver Location Sign, and all overhead signs refer to either "(M60)" or "(A666)".

Roadside marker posts count from the M60 towards Bolton.

Main Article: Worsley Braided Interchange

Worsley Braided Interchange is the Spaghetti Junction of the North. It's about 2.5 miles from one end to the other, sprawling over Linnyshaw Moss. The junction is notable in that, where the M60 clockwise splits off a slip road for the M61, you can draw a line roughly East–West and count eighteen lanes of motorway running in parallel.

M61 (A666(M)) has tunnels here - this is due to skew of the slips to the A580 (actually the M61 mainline!) passing overhead. - Coppermine - 1218.jpgManchester Road (A6) - Flickr - 10514693975.jpgMerging onto the M60 at J14. - Coppermine - 1216.jpgThe split for the M60 at the southern end of the M61. - Coppermine - 1217.jpgUnusual fork sign. - Coppermine - 1219.jpg
