The northbound carriageway (heading towards Cobridge) of the A53 Etruria flyover is closed until further notice so Stoke-on-Trent council can carry out safety inspections, following concerns raised by motorists earlier today.
Traffic will be diverted via the roundabout below the flyover.
The southbound carriageway (heading towards the A500) is unaffected and will remain open as normal.
At this point they are not sure when the lane will reopen, and they will provide more information once they have carried out these inspections.
