Misery for motorists

WIGAN commuters face hold-ups on the borough’s motorways this morning with lane closures on both the M6 and M58.

A broken down lorry has caused delays on the M6 southbound at Orrell while barrier repairs meant that a lane on the M58 westbound was closed early on Tuesday morning.

The stricken lorry blocked up the exit slip road at junction 26, M58 Orrell interchange, with the speed limit restricted to 40mph.
