    Baswich Lane bumper to bumper all the way from Weeping Cross to Tixall road as everyone tries to avoid it so it must be bad both ways at Radford

    As of 12.47. I would definitely recommend staying away from b and q etc. 20 minutes sat waiting to get off the car park and so far moved about 5 car lengths.

    Kinda makes you wish for rain to keep the prats at home, anyone lighting a barbie in public should have it stubbed out with their face

    Temporary lights on Wolverhampton Rd at Moss pit best avoided if you can . Son says just after the small bridge and was stuck queuing there for 20 minutes in this past hour. (M6 Southbound by Wednesbury , and M5 southbound at the split hardly moving either , if anyone is going that way. Sounds worse than the usual delays)

    Edit.....Entrance to M5 was closed off completely, police incident.

    For a while the temporary lights weren't working properly. Northbound traffic lights working properly, southbound stuck on red. Eventually some southbound vehicles started going through red when there was a break in northbound traffic, and made passing comments to the workmen. At which point some poor b----- was put to operating the lights manually.

    Eccleshall road is a nightmare, traffic lights half way down, although the sign says work doesn't start till 20th April...

    Yeah son said he was behind a lorry so couldn't see what was going on . Thought they must have been malfunctioning as when the lorry finally moved and he finally started going through , he followed the lorry past the red lights by that time being held by a worker.
    (Then bad luck , after a long wait stationary on the M6, to find the M5 closed with traffic cops blocking the M5 split off from the M6 at Wednesbury. .)

    Forgot to post this last night.
    3 way traffic lights at Milford mini roundabout (Barley Mow) yesterday teatime. Absolute chaos. There’s a BIG hole on the road by East TV. It looks like it’ll be there a while, they’ll probably be digging the other side of the road today. Situation not helped by people trying to get in & out of Wimpey& pub.

    Following Chris Peczek, driving instructor this evening. Approaching the traffic lights by The Sun. Whoever was driving had plenty of time to stop as the lights changed. Nope, went straight through. Even the youngest who doesn't drive commented on it.
    No wonder there's such a crap standard of driving on the roads these days.

    Bravo to the owner of this soft top BMW owner for not only leaving the car open and on display whilst parked next to Cafe Nero, but also leaving their sleeping child in the car as they went off to do errands in town.... Screenshot_20210608-174720_Gallery.jpg
