M67 Junction 3

Gantry signs on the M67 viewed from the café in Morrisons. In the background is the clearing up operation from the demolition of the former dyeworks. A full record of the demolition with photos and videos can be found on the Demolition of ABCWAX blog created by site manager David Bradley.

A contribution to signs, signs.


  1. Great stuff Gerald I love the link to ABCWAX
    Hope your keeping well

  2. What's the difference between "M" and "A"? Tom The Backroads Traveller

  3. I'll assume the M are the freeway system roads, where A roads might be highways.

    I can't recall the last time I heard the word gantry, but it's been awhile.

  4. Gantry is a new word for me!

  5. Gantry ... is that what these signs are called. I never knew.
    Having a motorway number in brackets is a bit confusing, though

    1. A "gantry" sign is one hung across the road and wikipedia suggests the term is not specific to the UK. The road sign in brackets - (M60) indicates that whilst you are currently on the M67 the destinations listed are accessed via the M60 which road will be met at a future junction. Hope that makes sense.

  6. Huh, I'd never heard that word before either.
