Route

The A62 runs north east from the Manchester Inner Ring Road (beginning as Oldham Street and Oldham Road) through Failsworth and Oldham then Saddleworth before crossing the Pennines at Standedge into West Yorkshire. Continuing through Marsden, Slaithwaite, Linthwaite, Huddersfield, Liversedge, Heckmondwike and Birstall. It terminates just short of Leeds city centre at its junction with the A58 road. It has primary status from Manchester as far as Oldham.

History

It is paralleled by part of the M62 Trans-Pennine motorway. Prior to the building of the M62, the A62 was the main trans-Pennine road between Oldham and Huddersfield. The M62 is numbered after the A62 and now takes most of the long-distance traffic between Manchester and Leeds.
