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 are the usual areas of traffic including congestion on A4123 Wolverhampton Road around A4034 Churchbridge (Birchley Island).

Normal service has resumed on the Midland Metro following earlier overhead line damage at Jewellery Quarter. Trams are now running between Birmingham and Wolverhampton without a change of tram needed at the Jewellery Quarter.

There are also 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.

One lane is also closed due to the Oldbury Viaduct roadworks on M5 northbound at J4A M42. Highways England are trying to keep M5 delays to a minimum by encouraging traffic to use M42 rather than the M5.

There is a speed restriction of 30 mph due to roadworks on A38 Stoke Road westbound in Stoke Heath between Sherwood Road and B4094 Worcester Road, while there are temporary traffic lights and roadworks on Quantry Lane near The Gutter in Bell End, Belbroughton.

In Dudley, Trindle Road is closed southbound due to water main work between A459 Castle Hill / Trindle Road and Hall Street. Following a burst water main, the road is closed from The Station Hotel going up the hill towards the Bus Station area. Traffic coming down Trindle Road (In a northbound direction) is not affected.

In Oldbury, temporary traffic lights and roadworks are in place on Warley Road at Basons Lane and on B4169 Causeway Green Road at Hadley Street.
