Miles Platting forms the junctions of the A62 and the A6010 in Manchester. The A6010 forms at this point the Manchester & Salford Intermediate Ring Road.

History

In the late 1960s both the A62 and Intermediate Ring Road were to be dualled and grade separated. A three level stacked roundabout would connect both roads and a half diamond would be built to the west to serve Collyhurst Street and Varley Street. Some light braiding of the slip roads would prevent any weaving. The Intermediate Ring Road would have many closely spaced junctions on its eastern side so braiding was also planned for the sountbound entry slip. The north facing slip roads would run beneath the main carriageway due to the railway lines.

As with many roads planned during this period the intended grade separation never happened and the junction ended up signal controlled.
