M62 woes

The worst way to start a Monday!

M62 madness

Picture of the traffic on the M62 eastbound between Brighouse and Ainley Top this morning.

It looks really busy and is down to a three-vehicle collision earlier. All lanes have now re-opened so it should be clearing soon.

M606 clear

The traffic on the M606 has now cleared - so for the record it’s busy on the M62 but everywhere else is business as usual.

Traffic updates

More traffic updates. There’s a lot of congestion on the M606 southbound, so that’s heading towards the M62. Watch out for that.

The M62 is still busy eastbound between Brighouse and Chain Bar and it’s also getting busy westbound between junctions 21 and 20 with a lane closed due to a broken down vehicle.

Stay safe.
