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 very busy, with the snow playing its part to cause delays.

Kidderminster’s A456 St Marys Ringway has heavy traffic both eastbound and westbound between A442 Proud Cross Ringway / Chapel Street and A451 The Ringway / Coventry Street.

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.
