A180 closed westbound for 6 hours yesterday

A serious road traffic collision closed the westbound A180 just after the Great Coates interchange.

Emergency services were quickly in attendance after a lorry overturned and left the road.  The road was closed westbound around 4:30pm, between the A1136 and the A1173.

Motorists were advised to avoid the area where possible, especially as traffic on the eastbound side slowed as well.  At such a busy time of day, traffic soon backed up, causing delays across Grimsby.

Recovery of the vehicle began around 8:30pm. The road and road furniture were also made safe.  The A180 finally reopened at about 10:30pm.
