Update:

Highways England have said the A55 has re-opened eastbound between the A483 and A41 near Huntington following a multi vehicle collision.

“All vehicles involved have been recovered, thankfully minor injuries only.”


Traffic is currently at a standstill due to an eight vehicle incident on the A55 eastbound, just after the Posthouse roundabout on the A55.

One report states the incident could involve many more vehicles that crashed into stopped traffic after the initial incident.

One person in touch says the road conditions were ‘icy’ at the time, meaning it was hard to stop, and a hail storm had just passed through the area.

Another driver said: “I managed to avoid the first two smashed cars on the carriageway, not surprised about the mayhem behind.” Adding, “Never see a hailstorm like that when driving, scary.”

Latest travel report says:

‘A55 Eastbound closed, stationary traffic due to multi-vehicle accident between J38 A483 Wrexham Road (Posthouse roundabout) and J39 A41 (Sainsbury’s / Boughton Heath Roundabout). Accident is believed to have eight vehicles involved and was not helped by ice on the road. Emergency services are at scene dealing, awaiting recovery for four of the vehicles. Affecting traffic travelling into Chester from North Wales..’

The incident is thought to have taken place around 6:15pm.
