The M602 is a short motorway in Greater Manchester, England. It links the M60 and M62 motorways from the west to Salford and Manchester. It also passes Eccles. The motorway is about 4 miles (6.4 km) long. It is used by traffic from the M62 to the west as a straight route into Manchester. The motorway was going to be part of a new motorway, the M52, but this was never built.[1][2]
