National Highways has announced nine road closures in and around Birmingham over the next fortnight - with some hold ups expected to last for half an hour

Drivers in and around Birmingham will have nine National Highways road closures to watch out for this week.

And five of them are expected to cause moderate delays – with motorists facing holdups of between 10 minutes and half an hour.
