Where in the midlands? I went from
Bristol to Wolverhampton this weekend and m6 was stacked. I would try and avoid unless you can't.
leicestershire.. it says junctions 4 join m6 junction 2 leave it..

the other way takes me a429 all the way to warick then a46 around coventry :s

I often go from a small village between Bath and Swindon to Birmingham. I take the back roads... A419 to A417 then get on to the M5 at J11a and straight up but I only ever travel outside of peak times so miss the traffic. However, you're going to Leics so definitely take the A429 as it's much much quicker and more direct - completely ignore M5!!

Or you could come off the M5 at Junction 9 and follow A46 all the way up to M69 at Cov.

Agree with baffledsamon I go to Leicester occasionally and once made mistake of m5. Stick to the back roads you will save lots of time
thanks all.. il give the back roads a try then.. :)
If you join the M4 at junction're going the wrong way!

Have you tried the RAC or AA online routeplanners to see what they suggest?
