The first section of what is now the M60 Manchester Outer Ring Road (the original plans took a different route: south of Stockport and served Manchester Airport directly) opened in 1960 as the M62 Stretford-Eccles bypass, but most of this was renamed M63 in 1971. Other sections opened between 1970 and 1989 as M62, M63, M66 and M68. In 1998 all then extant sections were renumbered M60, and their junctions were renumbered. The final section of the ring was opened as M60 in 2000.

The north-west quadrant of the M60 is multiplexed with the M62. This is one of only three multiplexes between two motorways in Great Britain.

Junctions

Simister Island

Main Article: Simister Island

Simister Island forms the northern corner of the M60 Manchester Outer Ring Road. Opened in 1971 as a standard two level roundabout with provision for an underpass onto the Bury Easterly Bypass (now M66) when constructed, it has since become vastly over-capacity. In 2000 as part of the creation of the M60, the interchange was given free-flow sliproads for the last of its four left turns (the other three had been done earlier), and the circulatory carriageway was widened to four lanes with colour-coded Spiral Roundabout markings to direct traffic through the newly signalised junction.


Worsley Braided Interchange

Main Article: Worsley Braided Interchange

Worsley Braided Interchange is the Spaghetti Junction of the North. It's about 2.5 miles from one end to the other, sprawling over Linnyshaw Moss. The junction is notable in that, where the M60 clockwise splits off a slip road for the M61, you can draw a line roughly East–West and count eighteen lanes of motorway running in parallel.

M60 Orbital Anticlockwise

A full anticlockwise loop of Manchester's M60 orbital motorway, starting at J3 (A34) and ending at J2 (A560) one orbit later. There's a contraflow on the north-east section

M60 Simister Island June 2020 Consultation Option 1

We are holding a consultation on our plans to improve Simister Island Interchange at junction 18 of the M60. This is the Northern Loop option, which is the first of the two options we have developed. For this option we’d build a new loop structure to provide a free-flow link from the M60 eastbound to the M60 southbound. We’d also build a wider free-flow link from the M60 northbound to the M60 westbound, and widen the M66 southbound to 4 lanes through the junction.

M60 Simister Island June 2020 Consultation Option 2

We are holding a consultation on our plans to improve Simister Island Interchange at junction 18 of the M60. This is the Inner Links option, which is the second of the two options we have developed. This would involve building two new bridges over the M66 within the roundabout. We’d also build a new free-flow link from the M60 eastbound to the M66 northbound, and replace the existing single-lane from the M60 northbound to westbound with two lanes. We’d need to widen the M60 eastbound and M66 southbound slip roads if we select this option, as well as widening Hills Lane bridge just north of the project.
