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 heavy traffic in Kidderminster on A456 St Marys Ringway Eastbound between A442 Proud Cross Ringway / Chapel Street and A451 The Ringway / Coventry Street.

The A491 in Kingswinford (Wolverhampton Road, Moss Grove and Market Street) around Summer Hill from Wall Heath is also experiencing heavy traffic.

There is also the usual congestion at the Burnt Tree traffic lights in Dudley and Birchley Island in Oldbury which is causing delays.

There are areas of planned roadworks which are causing delays, they 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.

There are also speed restriction of 20 mph in Pensnett due to roadworks and temporary traffic lights on A4101 High Street at High Oak.
