Full intended layout

Airport Interchange is junction 5 of the M56: the main junction connecting Manchester Airport to the motorway network. The junction is incomplete as the airport spur was to continue northwestwards to join the M63, now M60, near Sale. Additional slip roads would enable traffic from the south to reach the M63 by cutting the corner and avoiding a short section of Princess Parkway.
