Road closure causes tailbacks

Roadworks have been causing traffic jams during rush-hour between Hipperholme and Halifax.

Resurfacing work on Lister Road in Halifax started yesterday and is expected to take all week.

The road is closed in both directions between the Shibden Hall Road junction and the Claremount Road junction.

A spokesman for Calderdale Council said the work is essential and apologised for any inconvenience.
