THERE is a closure on the M53 after a driver crashed into a central reservation.

At around 12.36pm today (Tuesday, January 23) a driver crashed and caused damage to a central reservation.

One lane is currently closed due to emergency barrier repairs on M53 Northbound from J4 A5137 Brimstage Road (Bebington) to J3 A552 Woodchurch Road (Woodchurch).

A spokesperson for National Highways said: “Recovery was at the scene by 1.25pm and the car was removed shortly after.

“A lane three and two closure had been in place but lane two was reopened at 2.24pm. We are awaiting repair of the barrier but there is no timescale yet as to when that will be completed.”
