M62 Relief Road is a proposed Relief Road, forming an express route from the M62 to the west of Manchester, to the M62 to the east of Manchester. It is planned to follow the, now former route of the M62 (now M60). With the renumbering of the Manchester Ring Road to M60, it was likely to carry the M62 number.
In November 2016, it was recommended that there should be a new orbital link from the M62 J12 to the M62 J18 via M61 interchange reviving the proposed scheme in the 1990's which would provide traffic an alternative route to Liverpool and is likely to carry the M62 number.
