When the M60 opened in October 2000, I jumped in the car and drove all the way round. 35 miles.
Well I've not had a car for a few years now, and indeed the M60 claimed my car in a fury of rain, burnt rubber and multiple visits to the central barrier. See here.
But I still find the motorway an impressive piece of civil engineering.
This is the view clockwise from Lumb Lane, looking towards junction 23, the turn off for Ashton.
