Greater Manchester has the largest economy outside of London in the whole of the UK and the motorway network is the life blood of this economy.
A very well run highway network is a vital part of an exciting and forward-looking local economy.
Our highway network over 6000 miles of road in the UK.
Every year the travelling public makes around 1 billion trips (individual trips) on the motorway network of Greater Manchester which amounts to a whopping 11 million km.
This would allow us to travel to the sun and back 40 times.
