The A627(M) is a motorway that runs between Oldham and Rochdale in Greater Manchester, England. It is 3.5 miles (5.6 km) long and connects these two towns to the M62. It opened in 1972.[2]

Route[edit]

Heading north, the road starts as a two-lane dual carriageway on the A663 at Chadderton. It turns sharply left and passes west of Royton. It continues to its next junction, where it has a 1-mile (1.6 km) spur. Although signed as the A627(M), a map exists showing it as the A6138(M).[3] After this junction it gains a third lane, before reaching a roundabout at the M62 junction 20. This junction has been designed to accommodate a future flyover.[4] After crossing the roundabout the route continues as a dual two-lane route for another 1 mile (1.6 km) before turning sharp right to reach its terminal crossroads.
