The M602 motorway is a relatively short motorway, leading traffic into Manchester and Salford by by-passing the suburban town of Eccles.

The motorway itself was meant to be a part of a bigger scheme, the South Lancashire Motorway. To be designated M52, the route would link Liverpool and Manchester, and would be built to provide links to the growing UK motorway network [ [http://www.cbrd.co.uk/motorway/m602/ CBRD Motorway Database: M602] ] [ [http://pathetic.org.uk/lost/m52/ Pathetic Motorways: M52] ] .

However, at the same time, the M62 was being extended north and east of Worsley, around the north of Manchester, and on to Yorkshire, to form part of the Trans-Pennine Motorway route. This would be an upgraded version to the original plan of the East Lancashire Road, the A580, but would link onto the existing route at Worsley. It was decided that the Trans-Pennine Motorway be extended to Liverpool too, to provide a cross-country trunk route. The M62 was re-coursed to run via the route of the M52 between Worsley and Liverpool. This would leave a short stump of motorway between the M62 and Salford - this was first renumbered M64 [ [http://pathetic.org.uk/lost/m64_eccles_bypass/ Pathetic Motorways: M64 Eccles Bypass] ] then M602, whilst the southern end of the M62 between Worsley and Stretford became the M63.
