IF Tracy Chapman’s chap was driving her in his fast car on our roads, the only feeling she’d have is of being someone stuck in traffic.

Yes, it’s that time of day where most of us are fleeing the workplace to join traffic jams across North Worcestershire and the Black Country.

To try to mitigate such annoyances, why not use our traffic and travel page?

A quick look around the region has thrown up a few hots spots including:

*A451 Lion Hill, Stourport. Traffic building up in the southbound direction from A4025 Mitton Street to Mart Lane through the one way system.

*Summervale Road Hagley. The road both ways is closed due to water main work between A456 Kidderminster Road / B4187 Worcester Road / Western Road and Milestone Drive. To access Summervale Road use Church Street off of Worcester Road.

*A38 Birmingham Road, Lickey End. Gas main work and temporary traffic lights in use on A38 Birmingham Road near School Lane.

* A4101 High Street, Dudley. Speed restriction of 20 mph due to roadworks and temporary traffic lights on A4101 High Street at B4179 High Oak.
