M53 northbound to be closed overnight for emergency repairs

National Highways is advising drivers that the M53 northbound will likely remain closed overnight between junction 9 (Station Road) and 8 (Rossmore Road) for repairs.

Earlier, there was a serious collision involving a lorry and a tipper truck resulting in a large spillage of hydraulic fluid.

The incident resulted in a spillage of the fluid spanning 200 yards along the carriageway. This has left the road surface dangerously slippery and too unsafe for traffic to run on.

The following diversion is in place: Northbound – Hollow Square – Exit the M53 northbound at J9. At the M53 J9/A5032 roundabout, take the second exit and follow the A5032 northbound. At the A5032/M53 J8 roundabout, take the second exit and re-join the M53 northbound.
