    Most dangerous roads in Greater Manchester

    Greater Manchester is a metropolitan county encompassing North-West England’s metropolitan boroughs of Bury, Bolton and Manchester, as well as those of:

    • Oldham
    • Rochdale
    • Salford
    • Stockport
    • Tameside
    • Trafford
    • Wigan

    Densely populated and criss-crossed with miles of rural, urban and main roads, as well as several motorways, the area is subsequently frequently the scene of road accidents.

    Road traffic accidents in Greater Manchester

    Fortunately for drivers in this region, figures derived from a study published in October 2013 (Road Safety Foundation) show that only five of Greater Manchester’s roads are classed as high-risk roads. These roads include:

    • Stockport Road, connecting the inner Manchester ring road with the M60 (780 motoring accidents in last ten years).
    • Hyde Road, another ring road/motorway connection (139 vehicle accidents in last decade).
    • Oldham Road (minimum of one fatal accident per year).
    • Ashton Old Road (number of accidents unknown).

    While Rochdale Road, the fifth accident hotspot in this line-up had fewer than 100 car crashes per mile over the last decade, 28 of those accidents resulted in major injuries and 11 accidents were fatal.

    Other Greater Manchester Roads

    Most of the remaining roads in the region are classified as being of low to medium risk. Motorways throughout the area are apparently safe.
