Broken Down Lorry Causes A483 Traffic Chaos

A broken down lorry has caused traffic chaos on the A483 northbound this morning.

The RAC Traffic updates are reporting that one lane has been closed on the A483 northbound due to a broken down lorry on the A483 Wrexham Road at A55, J8 / Posthouse Roundabout.

The incident is believed to have taken place at around 8:45am this morning, resulting in congestion and long tailbacks down the bypass.

It is reported that traffic is currently queuing down towards the Rossett junction.

Throughout the morning a number of people have been in touch with us, with some querying whether or not the infamous roadworks had returned to the A483.

Whizzywoo tweeted Wrexham.com to say they got onto the A483 at 10.15 at Gresford and at 11am was still halfway to Posthouse Roundabout.

Rebecca added: “I’ve been queuing for nearly an hour and nowhere near the posthouse yet #gettingnaggy.”

Carron Samson also got in touch to say that she had spent an hour and a half queuing on the bypass to Chester. Adding: “Lorry on the roundabout, awful traffic.”

Thanks to ‘ToxicSky’ who sent us the above photo of the tailbacks currently going down the bypass.
