There are significant delays on the M55 eastbound.

But now that the workers are approaching the Broughton interchange with the M6, rush hour traffic is facing tailbacks.

It follows similar delays for commuters this morning - and a six mile tailback on the M6.

It is not yet known when the maintenance work will be completed.

The outside lane has been closed for maintenance of the central grass verge.
