Commuters along the M62 faced early morning delays following an accident involving two cars and a lorry.
The crash at around 8am saw two lanes closed on the M62, eastbound, between Junction 26, M606 (Chain Bar) and Junction 27, M621 (Gildersome).
Congestion was seen backing up to A629 (Ainley Top) on the M606 to Junction 3, A6036 (Staygate Roundabout).
Highways England has confirmed that all lanes now open.
The vehicles have been recovered within the smart motorways section as delays remain but are steadily clearing.
