Previous Report: Traffic Wales is warning of possible delays on the A55 eastbound between Holywell and Northop due to an accident.

North Wales Police have posted an update on social media stating:

“RTC A55 Eastbound just after turning for Halkyn, by Billy Jeans Café. One lane is closed, traffic is heavy of course due to time of day. Disruption expected for approximately another hour.”
