Just experienced these delays trying to go from bidston to sainsburys in upton. Roads closed off next to the co op at the bottom of ford hill near Noctorum.

Round the world to wood church road and then give up....

I think this incident really highlights how the M53 cuts the Wirral in half, once Upton bridge was closed Arrowe park/Woodchurch became a nightmare. I had to return home from Birkenhead via Leasowe Road.

Don't think many roads were stopped up when they built the motorway. If anything the motorway takes a lot of traffic off the other roads
