Delay warnings for roadworks on motorways and A-roads in Black Country and Staffordshire

Motorists across the region are set to be faced with a number of road closures over the next week.

National Highways has released data showing works taking place, with drivers advised to avoid those routes while the works go ahead.

Closures are taking place across the Black Country in Dudley, Wolverhampton, Sandwell and Walsall, and into South Staffordshire.

They are split into categories of how long the delays are expected to be, and these are 'up to 10 minutes, and 'between 10 and 30 minutes'.
