South west end of Hardy lane, looking in the direction of Barlow Moor Road
When Hardy Lane was widened from a narrow country lane in the 1920s, the planners had in mind an extension across the Mersey to form a significant arterial road. This explains the exceptional width of what is essentially a cul-de-sac. (The Hardy Lane Extension was still being seriously considered into the late 1960s / early 1970s when the M63 was being designed and built, with junctions set out with this link in mind).

This view is set to change substantially in coming years as the Metrolink line to the airport is due to be constructed along this road, continuing towards a river crossing near Jackson's Boat.
