Delays on M56 heading towards North Wales due to a “carriageway defect” – again!

It follows a similar closure on the same stretch on Monday for the same reason.
National Highways has said that two lanes are closed westbound between junction 12, Runcorn and junction 14 Stanlow as a result of the carriageway defect.
Contractors are on the way to carry out repairs.
