Road

M6 motorway

Manchester city region lies at the heart of an expansive motorway network, ensuring easy access to the UK’s major cities and centres of commerce.

The road infrastructure in and around greater Manchester means that 60% of all businesses and a consumer market of 20 million are within 2 hours drive time of the city centre.

With 25% of the nation’s motorway miles, the city region boasts one of the best road networks in the UK with both linear and orbital motorways.

The M62 (East) links Manchester with Leeds, the Humber ports the M1 and the A1. The M62 West means access to Liverpool and Warrington is made remarkably easy, taking less than an hour to travel from Manchester to Liverpool.

The M6 Northbound links Manchester to the Lake District, Carlisle and Scotland.

The M6 Southbound links the city region to Birmingham, Bristol, Wales and London.

The M60 ring road, completed in 2001, makes access in and around the city centre much easier and has also helped to make the traffic flow less congested. As the M60 is circular running through the conurbation of Greater Manchester, it has greatly improved the city region’s inter-suburban links, a major accessibility factor when deciding to locate.

The A57/M1 South connects Manchester with Sheffield, Nottingham and London and providing access to the East of England.
