The A62 is a major road in England that runs between the two major cities of Manchester and Leeds.

The road is approximately 40 miles (65 km) long. It runs north east from Manchester (beginning as Oldham Street and Oldham Road) through Failsworth and Oldham then Saddleworth before crossing the Pennines at Standedge into West Yorkshire. Continuing through Marsden, Slaithwaite, Linthwaite, Huddersfield, Liversedge and Birstall. It terminates just short of Leeds city centre at its junction with the A58 road.

It is paralleled by part of the M62 Trans-Pennine motorway. The M62 is numbered after the A62 and now takes most of the long-distance traffic between Manchester and Leeds.
