The eastbound carriageway has reopened following an earlier closure due to a collision.

From earlier:

Police have closed the eastbound A494 near Deeside Industrial Estate due to a road traffic collision.

Kate told us there’s an ambulance and multiple police cars in attendance and a diversion is in place.

North Wales Police Road Policing Unit tweeted (with above picture) at 8.03pm:

‘Collision on the A494 E/B Deeside, we have put a road closure in place. Please slow when approaching Drome Corner. Thank you.’

 Latest traffic report says the A494 is closed both ways;

‘A494 both ways closed due to accident between A540 Parkgate Road / A5117 and A550 Welsh Road (Shotwick / Birkenhead Turn Off.’

However the westbound appears to be running ok.
