Car Hire Birmingham Airport will be making a note of all the road works going on in the area and making all car hire customers aware of alternative routes to help reduce the chances of being stuck in traffic this summer.
Drivers in Birmingham are set for a summer of traffic jams, with road works and improvements taking place across the city. There is to be work on improving the A452 Chester Road between the Bagot Arms roundabout and J5 of the M6, with up to 40,000 drivers a day who use the route being affected.
It is going to be a year-long scheme with a number of changes in the area including two lanes of traffic being created at the Bagot Arms roundabout.
Drivers hitting the city centre will be in for more closures of the Queensway tunnels this summer, from 19th July to 1st September for the second phase of improvement works.
Train passengers will also be suffering disruption with the line between Redditch and Barnt Green shut from July 6th to August 31st.
