Traffic is heavy on the roads around Chester this morning (Monday September 21).
The M56 east-bound was slow moving prior to the scene of an earlier accident at junction 10 near Stretton. Lane one (of three) was closed heading away from Runcorn towards Manchester between 7.30am and 8:55am but is now clear.
Traffic on the M56 has also been slow eastbound around junction 15 at the intersection with the M53 due to hazardous driving conditions as a result of surface water.
Meanwhile, there has been congestion on the North Wales-bound carriageway of the A55 around the Hoole and Vicars Cross area.
