GOOD morning. We are here to provide any information on incidents that might crop up throughout the rush hour period this morning on our Black Country and North Worcestershire roads.

So far the roads across the area are pretty quiet, but there is one lane closed on the M42 southbound between J1 (Bromsgrove) and M5 J4A due to lorry having a tyre changed.

Traffic is slow traffic in Hopwood on A441 Birmingham Road both ways around Lea End Lane in the roadworks area where gas main work is taking place.

There is also heavy traffic in Amblecote on A491 High Street southbound before Stourbridge ring road, in Pensnett High Street near High Oak, in Halesowen on A456 Manor Way Eastbound at A459 Grange Road Roundabout and in Kingswinford on A491 Wolverhampton Road, Moss Grove and Market Street around Summer Hill from Wall Heath.

Areas of planned roadworks which are causing delays include:

Speed restriction of 30 mph and one lane closed due to major roadworks and contraflow on M5 both ways between J1 (West Bromwich / Birmingham) and J2 (Oldbury). Work on the Oldbury Viaduct means that all traffic is sharing one side of the road as a contraflow.
