The M67 is a motorway in Greater Manchester, England. It starts from the M60 and passes through the towns of Denton and Hyde. It then carries on as the A628 towards Sheffield and Barnsley. It was first planned that the motorway would go al the way to Sheffield through the Pennines, but this has not happened yet. The M67 is 5 miles (8.0 km) long.[1][2]
