Does anyone know why the section of the M5 northbound has reduced lanes at the junction with the M42. It has been reduced since the smart motorway works were completed but there doesn’t seem to be anything being done to that part of road at all.
It causes a real delay during busy periods. Might ease the frustration if the reason behind it was known!
No its to keep people from the south west out of Solihull ;-)
In reply to mhawk:
It's still nearly always quicker to go up the M42 - however I approve of people being sent another way, particularly on a Friday when the weight of M40 traffic slows the traffic past Shirley and Solihull to a snails pace.
