MOTORISTS are being advised to expect increased traffic on Manor Way.

Dudley Council project engineer Jill Wakeman said: "The A456 Manor Way near the junction with Manor Lane has been reduced to one lane to accommodate emergency works to repair a gas leak.

"At this stage, it is not known how long the work will take."

She added: "There is already significant congestion which is likely to increase towards the evening rush hour, and drivers are advised to seek an alternative route if possible."
