The eastern gateway of Mancunian Way is marked by the railway viaduct which first opened in 1842 as part of the Manchester to Birmingham railway. It was electrified around 1960 and continues in use as the West Coast line to London. The blue-painted First North Western train waiting on the left serves regional destinations. This section of the Mancunian Way is part of the A635, which branches off to the right just beyond the viaduct, and leads to Ashton, Tameside, the Pennines and eventually, Doncaster.
