Early design for the junction
Rejected 1990s option

Princess Parkway Interchange is junction 5 of the M60 and was junction 9 of the M63 when it opened in 1974. The original design for the junction differed to what was eventually built but the movements remained the same. The right turn onto the A5103 south is perhaps not as severe on this early layout.

In the 1990s there were proposals to widen the M63 between this junction and Urmston. One of the rejected options moved the motorway onto a new alignment between here and Sale Interchange and the junction would have been completely rebuilt with the addition of north to west slip roads. This would have avoided the need for the Hardy Lane Extension.
