“Delays down to 20 minutes”
Congestion on the M6 is easing after an earlier multi-vehicle crash near Birmingham. An accident took place on the motorway’s southbound carriageway between junctions 6 and 5 shortly after 12pm on Saturday (May 14).
The incident was cleared at 1pm with traffic tailing back to junction 8 not helped by a second accident on the M5 northbound slip road on to the M6, which saw more traffic diverted onto the M6 southbound.
But now National Highways is reporting delays of 20 minutes as the traffic build-up starts to clear after the earlier accident.
