M66 Ramsbottom

The M66 at Ramsbottom, looking north. The motorway cuts through the east side of the town, but you would never guess you were passing through an urban area. Note that it is also unlit here.

A555 or M555 Manchester - Coppermine - 942.jpg
A555 or M555? Manchester

The Manchester A555 was it ever planned as a motorway? Perhaps to connect to the projected A6(M) Stockport north / south bypass? Well this scan from a 1988 'Reader's Digest' Road Atlas has the tell tale blue dashed line to say 'projected motorway'.

Old Manchester 1. M62 J18

It's the very first bit to the M66 to be 'finished'. It doesn't seam to end at an island though just a T junction with the A576? Originally uploaded to Coppermine on Apr 04, 2005 by Mediaman_12

Ferngrove Estate 001.jpg
Looking north along the Ferngrove Estate in Bury. The M66 dominates the area.
Ferngrove Estate 002.jpg
Another view of the Ferngrove Estate. A ramp emerges from one of two subways under the motorway. At night the motorway is no longer lit so some of the visual intrusion is reduced.
Ferngrove Estate 003.jpg
The western side of the M66 has not got the luxury of green space; prior to the M66 construction it looks like a junction was intended at this location. The motorway put paid to all that leaving only two subways and a convoluted loop further north as accesses between the two sides of the estate.

Planned layout of Castle Hill Interchange (Stockport) which would have provided the missing north facing connection from the local road network onto the M66 at Bredbury Interchange. In the end these slip roads were built at Bredbury making this junction redundant.
