SJ3772 : The M56 starts here - at least officially

The M56 starts here - at least officially
Motorway commencement sign on the M56 extension opened in 2008. The original eastbound carriageway from the A5117 can just be seen coming in from the left, its position given away by the route confirmatory sign in the distance. The commencement sign is considerably after the last possible exit for non-motorway traffic, a confusion reflected in the OS maps' colouring for this area, which fail to reflect the long westbound "tail" of the M56 west of here to the point at which the slip road from the A5117/A540 joins.
