Worsley Braided Interchange (also known as Swinton Interchange)

Main Article: Worsley Braided Interchange

Completed in 1970, the Swinton Interchange was the most complex motorway interchange to open. It features numerous carriageways to that decision points and weaving are reduced to a minimum. An unusual element of the junction is that the M61 mainline branches off to join the A580 - the 'mainline' is actually the unsigned A666(M).
