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 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.

In Quinton there are roadworks on A456 at M5 J3 (Halesowen / Birmingham) around the motorway island, while in Oldbury electricity work and temporary traffic lights are in place on Tat Bank Road at Parsonage Street.

There is telecoms work and temporary traffic lights going on in Catshill on B4185 Golden Cross Lane at Green Lane, and in Himley there is temporary traffic lights and electricity work in place on Bridgnorth Road at School Road / Himley Lane, opposite Windemere House.
