The A555 Stockport Airport Link Road is closed between Bramhall and the A34 roundabout due to flooding.
The closure had knock on effects in the area and caused huge tail backs during the Monday morning commute.
Stockport Council have issued the following notice:
The A555 is currently closed in both directions between the Chester Road roundabout and the A34 as a result of flooding. The road will be reopened as soon as possible once the water has been drained and the road cleared. We apologise for any delays.
The flooding has been caused by the failure of an old pump station on the original A555 and engineers have been working throughout the weekend to address the problem.
The road will be re-opened as soon as possible once the water has been drained and the road cleared.
