THERE is a lane closed and queueing traffic due to emergency repairs on M56 both ways this afternoon, Friday.

This is between junction 9 for the M6 Lymm Interchange and junction 10 for Stretton.

Congestion is back to junction 11 at Preston Brook eastbound and traffic is backed up to the Walton Arms on Chester Road on the approach to the M56.

Lane three of three is closed for emergency barrier repairs.

This is also causing queues on the M6 southbound from junction 21A for the M62 Croft interchange on approach to the Lymm Interchange.
