SD8811 : Tesco Junction

taken 8 years ago, near to Rochdale, Great Britain

Tesco Junction
Tesco Junction
The "Tesco roundabout" was the second (smaller) traffic island at Sudden. Although still shown on the OS map as a roundabout, the junction of the A58 Bolton Road and the A664 Manchester Road was re-designed in a major roadworks scheme during 2007-8, to ease congestion.

This view is taken from Bolton Road (the A58) looking towards Rochdale. To the right, traffic is joining from Manchester Road (the A664) and the Tesco supermarket.
A664 Road
The A664 runs 12 miles from Manchester to the northern side of Rochdale, forming an easterly bypass around Rochdale. It has two spurs in and near Castleton, one (the original route of the road, to the original terminus) to meet the A58 at Sudden, and the other (Edinburgh Way) to meet the A58 about 100 yards northeast of the first location, meeting the A627(M) on the way.
