Wilmslow Road Junction is a temporary western terminus of the A555 near to Handforth to the south of Manchester. The junction opened in 1995 with the rest of the current A555 and the A34 Wilmslow and Handforth bypass. The junction was constructed as an incomplete dumbbell, with an unused overbridge awaiting the western extension of the A555 towards Manchester Airport

Work started nearly 20 years later, in 2014 to fill in the gap between here and Manchester Airport, which finally saw the unused overbridge bought into use in 2018 and the junction completed.
