Writing on Twitter, Northwest Motorway Police tweeted: “Patrol on RTC route between 17 and 18 Northbound on M6.
“Drive to the area and take note of any warnings that may be on the overhead gantries.”
On September 7, emergency services dragged the M6 after a lorry driver collided with a railway bridge.
It was later revealed that a man, aged 60, died at the scene.
He was driving a blue and white HGV on Northbound Carriageway before hitting the bridge between Junction 17 for Sandbach and Junction 18 for Middlewich.
A turn was made but the traffic came to a complete standstill, causing motorcyclists to wait for three hours.
It is believed that the accident took place on the same side of the road today but not on the bridge where the lorry driver collided.
