An HGV crashed and overturned on the westbound carriageway of the A494 flyover at Queensferry on Wednesday, May 20.

The barriers were extensively damaged in the incident and both sides of the carriageway were reduced to one lane.

Traffic Wales said today work has been completed and all lanes are back open.
