The Tarbock Island junction links the M62 (Junction 6)with the M57 and the A5300 and is used by more than 113,000 vehicles a day.
A brook runs under the island,its starts named as Logswood Mill Brook through the Ind estate which becomes Chapel Brook as it goes around and under the motorways then exits as Ochre Brook towards Tarbock Green.

A £38 million road improvement scheme for the M62 Junction 6 for a new free-flow link road between the M57 and the M62 eastbound and a new free-flow lane from the M62 westbound to the M57 on the opposite side was completed in December 2008.

Georgie mentioned this place a while ago after he saw something when passing it.I had a quick look a few weeks ago near the entrance when i was heading to check out BASF Huyton only to find out that had ben demoed.:banghead

After checking it was doable off we went to check it out.Mainly consisting of 6 box concrete sections passing under the motoways and slipways but at least not stoopy.

Visited with Georgie.
