Long-suffering commuters struggling to work along what passes for West Midlands motorways can risk an ironic smirk today in the knowledge that this region has three of the fastest roads in the country.

Sadly, two of them, the M45 between Coventry and Rugby and the M69 between Coventry and Leicester, long derided as routes from nowhere to nowhere, are uncongested because they are woefully underused.

The second fastest road in the country, the M6 Toll, is indeed astonishingly free of traffic. But at pounds 4 each way, the reluctance of motorists to forsake the M6 is understandable.
