M60, A57

Denton Interchange is junction 24 of the M60, and junction 1 of the M67. It was junction 11 of the M66.

It initially opened in 1981 as a western temporary terminus for the M67 with the intention was for it to continue into Manchester. This was never carried out and a 'ski jump' remains.

The M60 to the south opened in 1989 as part of the M66. Denton Interchange was built to its current layout at that point with provision for that road to continue north, which opened (as M60) in 2000.

M67 Flyover

The M67 flyover was programmed to be built first with the M66 to the north being built at a later date. Proposals for the flyover were made in 1976. Orders were made for its construction in 1980 which by now had included a service road for the houses to the west of the roundabout. A total of five carriageways with a cross section of ten lanes would have existed at its widest point which would have required the demolition of some of the houses nearest the junction.
