Last updated Nov 18, 2021

Good morning and happy Thursday. It’s Suzannah back with you this morning with frequent travel alerts to try and make your journey as smooth as possible.

I’ll let you know about roadworks, delayed buses and any traffic hotspots that could cause you delays.

If you spot anything, and it is safe to do so, give me a call on 01423 276197 and we can help other commuters too.
