Manchester Road in Carrington is currently at a standstill and could be for some hours due to temporary lights in the area.
The congestion has severely delayed the buses from Partington with Arriva 247 adding on an extra 30 minutes to the journey, other roads are also congested including Carrington Lane and the mile road heading towards Urmston.
Stagecoach have confirmed delays of around 20 minutes both ways on the 255 service are currently being experienced.
If you need to get to Stretford or anywhere else we suggest heading down SInderland Lane and on to the A56, the road works will continue for days as an internet provider lays down its cables.
