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.

There are still issues on the trains with no service on CrossCountry at University after a tree fell on to overhead wires, with services being diverted between Birmingham New Street and Bromsgrove due to overhead line problems. Tickets being accepted on local bus routes.

A replacement bus service is running between Longbridge and Bromsgrove, and between Longbridge and Redditch, while there is no service on West Midlands Railway between Birmingham New Street and Longbridge due to the overhead line problems at University.

Lines are closed while repairs are on-going and trains between Hereford and New Street may be diverted via Kidderminster.

Planned roadworks are also causing delays and they include:

One lane closed and speed restriction of 30 mph due to contraflow and major roadworks on M5 both ways between J1 A41 Birmingham Road (West Bromwich / Birmingham) and J2 A4123 (Oldbury / Birmingham). Expect delays.

Works on the Oldbury Viaduct means that all traffic is sharing one side of the road as a contraflow.

One lane closed due to roadworks on M5 link road Southbound from M6. The M5 link road South coming off the M6 is down to one lane as part of the viaduct work.

A lane is closed due to traffic management for the M5 Oldbury Viaduct roadworks on M5 Northbound at J4A M42. Linked to the major roadworks further up at the Oldbury Viaduct between J2 and J1.

There is a speed restriction of 30 mph due to roadworks in Bromsgrove on A38 Worcester Road westbound between Austin Road and B4091, while there are temporary traffic lights and roadworks on A448 Comberton Road near Kidderminster Train Station.

Tessall Lane in Longbridge is closed due to roadworks at Longbridge Lane. The stretch between the bridge over the River Rea by the Austin Social Club entrance to the junction with Longbridge Lane will be closed permanently to motorised vehicles.

There is also electricity work and temporary traffic lights on the A461 in Burnt Tree at Coneygree Road.
