On the 1967 Ordnance Survey Route Planning Map, junctions are shown as numbered from south to north, consecutively as 1-6.

The original use of the M62 number was for the Stretford-Eccles Bypass across the Lancashire-Cheshire border to the west of Manchester. It was renumbered to M63 in 1968, before being renumbered again to M60 in 1999.

It is located between the modern junction 7 and 13 of the M60.

There is an amount of confusion as to whether the junctions on the M62 were ever numbered. A number of maps by various providers (such as Ordnance Survey, an example of which is shown to the left) showed junction numbers starting with 1 at the southern end (now M60 J7), moving consecutively to 6 at the northern end, with no spare numbers left for the then-planned M52 South Lancashire Motorway and M60 AltrinchamSaleStretford Bypass. Other sources suggest that this is incorrect, and that the junctions were only numbered (in the opposite direction) once the motorway had been renumbered to M63.
