The closure of the M56 has been extended after a crash on the A538 Hale Road.
The Highways Agency say: "The M56 is closed in both directions J5 - J6, all weekend, for planned works. The diversion route has changed due to a very serious incident on the A538 (Hale Road) approaching Altrincham.
Traffic is now encouraged to divert at J7 of the M56, via the A56 and A560, rejoining the M56 at J3, near Wythenshawe."
