The M60, the Manchester outer ring road is a thing of wonder. Thirty-six miles that form the UK’s only circular motorway that, were it not for its twenty-seven junctions, could be an infinite loop of Ballardian lust for drivers. The sheer scale and height of the ring road at the Barton High Level Bridge is nothing short of spectacular as its sleek concrete curves take you into the sky. Stretching out at either end of this motorway section is the ceaseless thrum of traffic, audible to many within its circumference and beyond, reminding Mancunians that their circulation system is very much alive.
