Description:
The A57(M), also known as the Mancunian Way, is a long motorway in Manchester, England. It is part of the A57, which runs east-west through Greater Manchester, and links the M602 and M67 motorways.

It then runs for around ¾ mile (1.2 km) before reaching its junction with the A6 which it crosses on a bridge before dropping down to ground level. It then finishes on the A635 and continues eastbound, and also continues to be called the Mancunian Way.
