    It’s very broken west bound J28 onwards.

    I was driving the other way and was very grateful (and a little bit smug) that I wasn’t going Westbound.

    A good 10 miles+ of stationary traffic…

    Took me an hour and a half to get from Newcastle to J28 of M62.

    Took another hour to get to J27!

    It’s a nightmare; don’t miss my commute over the top every day for five years.

    Coming back from holiday today and got a tour of Cleckheaton/Mirfield/Rastrick in the interests of avoiding an overturned lorry between J25 & J24…

    I used it for the best part of 5 years (lived in Morley) in the late 90’s but reckon if you think this:

    its the shittest road in britain

    You’ve not used the M4 between Slough and London.

    It took me 3 1/2 hours to do Leeds to Stoke via the A38 this morning, I think everywhere has been broken today

    The M62 is weird. The best way to make progress is to sit in the first lane and set your cruise control to 80. In the words of Billy Connolly, “there’s no bugger there.”

    I genuinely laughed out at that; so true!

    Lovely scenic road, pootle along at 55 and admire the scenery, and all the hard work put in building the thing.

    Pure engineering, except fr the liverpool to manchester bits

    the worst bit is when the M62 breaks, all the other roads around it break too. I have to get across it south to north on my way home & tonight could have been better. could have been a lot worse too.

    I agree with Project about the pennine section, I never once go through without thinking about how it was built.

    Like most motorways they are a victim of their own success with business and retail parks off most junctions

    In my opinion, the M62 is nothing compared to the M60, what kind of a motorway requires going round a traffic light controlled roundabout just to stay on the bloody thing ?

    Near the Trafford Centre, if it rains it comes to a grinding halt. That Motorway was the main reason I left my job as a Van Driver just got fed up with it all.

    Well that makes me a little happier, having had the pleasure of the M62/60 daily for about 3 years in the last 7. A complete and utter waste of my life 🙂

    Just spent 15mins dropping the missus at work and just made a cup of tea before heading to my home office. Much better idea.

    and for the rest of this week I too shall be working in my home office. No ’62 for me

    I live north of Bratfud, have to get to south of Wakefield when in the office. from home, A650 as far as M62 J27. on M62 to J29, then down M1 to J38. Homeward journey is the reverse of this. This time last year it was taking up to 2 hours to do that journey. FFS I can do it on a pushbike in 2 hours 👿

    JD, make no wonder you’re WFH. You’re taking in all the best bits of the local road network with that commute aren’t you!!
