Ridiculous, we either have school traffic or roadwork's, why can you do this when there are no holidays give them the hassle, we get 6 weeks of reprieve driving in the summer when the traffic calms down and you do this, there is no 10min delay its an hour at least, and after two weeks it doesn't look like anything has actually been done!!!!

It's a total nightmare at the moment. all the roads off the motorway are totally congested! A journey that takes 45 minutes in the morning takes an hour and 40 in the afternoon. It’s a total joke no wonder no pot holes are being fixed in our towns it takes a bunk of numpties the whole school holidays to resurface a few miles and then it will be a wreck again by January! I can’t accept what they are doing here and the impact that it Is having. Avoiding the motorway is even worse as you get all sorts of idiots driving on the roads cutting people up!

Absolutely ridiculous - I've had to avoid the M6 and M42 to get home at the moment as the queues are going back to Jc6 of the M42 and Jc 5 of the M6!!! 10 minutes delay??!!! More like 50 minutes! My 15 mile commute took me ONE HOUR AND THIRTY MINUTES at the start of the week. Who's compensating us for the wasted fuel and time, or the extra fuel, mileage and time used up avoiding the area? I think its about time us motorists started claiming this back from the govt, then they might get things done a little quicker. Disgusting.

So they say 10 mins delay to this latest batch of roadworks. I sat for an hour to get from m6 onto the M42 and off again at junction 9. Traffic in south bound lane cutting in last min to go north. This with the Aston express way and Junction 6 repairs makes a 30 min journey now one hour and 20 mins.....planning dept..what planning.

I have been using this motorway for the last 12 years to commute to and from work. Every night they have been working on this stretch.6 blokes standing around one little hole or 2 mile stretch of cones with no one in sight. ridiculous. No wonder all our road taxes are going up! It's down to so many Muppets taking the mickey on this stretch. Would be interesting to get panorama or similar program down there to investigate!!
