Junction 3 of the M56 is an unusual example of a motorway TOTSO. The D3M, locally north-south route from the A5103 to junction 7 was opened in January 1972. The D2M eastern arm towards Sharston, Cheadle and Stockport followed in May 1975.

Southward from here to junction 4 has always been D4M. This D4M was extended from J4 to J6 in the early 1990s (except inside J5 which remains D3M).
