M61 interchange, view west, 12 December 1997
M61 interchange, view west (see all photos of the same view)
The M61 interchange has an even larger roundabout than the M6 junction. The viaduct crossing it is future-proofed to carry three lanes each way, but to this day only carries two, with a double-width hard shoulder occupying the rest of the space. Towards the top right of the picture, the Walton Summit Motorway links back to Tramway Lane.
