Highway Agency’s warning after accidents on M62


Surface water is causing problems for motorists on the M62.

The Highway Agency is warning motorists to drive carefully especially between junction 24 at Ainley Top and junction 27 at Gildersome due to surface water and visibility being reduced.

One lane is also closed on the westbound carriageway due to an accident between junction 26 at Chain bar and junction 25 at Brighouse. Currently there is delays of ten minutes and the lane is expected to reopen at around 11.45am.

The lane closed for an earlier accident between the same junctions on the eastbound carriageway has since reopened.
