COMMUTERS faced long delays this morning (Monday) after a major road was closed for emergency bridge repairs.

Access was restricted to allow inspectors to assess the bridge at the roundabout on Winwick Lane where it crosses the M6 at junction 22, Warrington.

The southbound A579 was shut at the junction with the A572, with diversions in place to the A49 and drivers wanting to use the motorway told to use junction 23, Haydock Island.

Traffic trying to get off the M6 at junction 22 was diverted via junction nine of the M62.
