It is not very often I post in praise of TT, but yesterday the RDS-TMC saved me over an hour of delays on my way home from Bristol.

Left Bristol at approx 5pm heading north on the M5. As I got closer to Birmingham the Matrix signs were warning of long delays M5 J2 to M6 J11. The TT RDS-TMC was warning me of 120 minutes delays and asking if I wanted to reroute. Seeing as the Matrix signs seemed to concur with this I rerouted.

It took me off the M5 at J2, through Dudley and Wednesbury and rejoined the M6 at J10 (I think), where the traffic was indeed very heavy but starting to clear. Didn't seem to take too long either to cut across.

So - for once it seemed to work!

Is the data getting more accurate since the implementation of HD Traffic?

historically this is a bad route. I normally rejoin the m6 further north at j12 cannock and the heavy stuff has mostly gone by then. Thankfully I don't travel that wy very often now.
