Update:  ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Traffic has cleared on the A494 following the earlier delays which were caused after a Blue Renault Clio collided with barrier and tree around 5.30am. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Police say nobody was injured in the collision and recovery of the vehicle began at 7.20am which led to queues as far up as Holywell. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Original report: ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

There is heavy traffic heading Eastbound from the A55 to the A494 this morning due to a ‘police incident’ ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

There’s a reported 6 mile queue of stationary traffic along A55 to Aston Hill, and long delays on B5125 Holywell Road to the A494. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Latest traffic report for the area states: ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Slow traffic due to police incident on A494 Eastbound at B5125 Holywell Road / B5125 The Highway / Liverpool Road (Buckley Turn Off), congestion on A55 to J33a Brookside (Northop Hall East). ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

While the nature of the ‘police incident’ isn’t clear, Steve told us “it may have something to do with the recovery vehicle trying to get a blue car out of the trees near the railway bridge by the old Aston Hill turn off….” ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​
