The M23 was down to only one lane earlier today after a serious accident caused the emergency services to close down two of the lanes.
Photos from Surrey Police showed extensive queueing traffic as the fire services were in attendance.
The accident was southbound between Jnc 8 (M25) and Jnc 9 (Gatwick Airport).
Emergency services have now managed to clear the incident.
