A5225 Wigan Gateway 24 December 2008

Construction of a new route around the south of Wigan, commencing at the existing Orrell Interchange (connecting the M58 and M6) as a dual-two lane road with grade separated junctions. North of Ince-in-Makerfield the route narrows to single-carriageway, but with provision for a future upgrade to dual carriageway. It will terminate on the A579 between Leigh and Atherton.
