Thursday 21 Oct 2021 1.14am congestion signs left on yet motorway was empty. Incident signs on yet no Incident on motorway, it was empty and clear. Signs stating 40mph Lane closed yet no first indication of which lane. Then Half a mile before the two lanes that was closed, two cars parked with emergency lights on hard shoulder of motorway yet the lane 1 & 2 closed signs are set half a mile ahead, with cars travelling at 40mph trying to switch last minute from 1st lane to 3rd in time but getting snapped by the camera in the process. Motorway ahead of the signs, empty with no incidents, no cars with no indication of when to enter back into the lane as the signs are just before the junction to bolton. A mix up to many motorists needing to exit to bolton but ending up heading straight on to bury, Oldham instead. Please turn off earlier incident signs from hours before because this is famous for this stretch of smart motorway with signs being left on and motorists being charged with fines for last minute ditch attempts to exit closed lanes.
