There’s currently around 1.5 miles of queuing traffic on the A494 eastbound along Aston Hill into Queensferry.
The build up of traffic due to lane closures following this morning’s fire at the Gateway to Wales hotel – report here.
Flintshire County Council say closures on the at Drome Corner Eastbound off-slip and the two lanes of the A494 eastbound dual carriageway will be removed by 1pm today.
The B5441 Welsh Road will remain closed until further notice.
Traffic not good today. Getting into Chester via Saltney was terrible this morning – took 1hr from Morrisons to Garden Lane. A494 w’bound was fine 30 minutes ago, but e’bound down to one lane past GTW hotel, so very slow down Aston Hill/Queensferry. Take care, everybody.
