The main problem here is although the existing junction is a full freeflow, it's radii are much too tight and the main flow of traffic has to TOTSO. There's also the problem of weaving between J12 and J13. To overcome this the main traffic flow needs to cut the corner and so the M62-M60 North TOTSO is removed. J12 now only needs 3 of the 4 turning movements providing and extra slips remove the weaving between here and J13. Simple eh?
