Speed limit

Reported via mobile in the Sign issue category anonymously at 07:10, Tuesday 26 October 2021

Sent to National Highways less than a minute later

The temporary 60mph signs have been illuminated for around 2 weeks between M62 Croft and M602 in both directions. No signs of any road works, broken down cars or any other issue. The larger signs have no reason. Speed limit on motorway is 70, smart motorways are not a back door to reducing speed limits.

  • On the M62 between junctions 10 and 12 we are urgently addressing a potential manufacturing fault with roadside message signs. As a mitigation measure we introduced a temporary speed limit of 60 mph. The smart motorway remained covered by CCTV and closely monitored by our control room staff. This issue has now been resolved and the message boards are fully operational

    We would like to thank drivers for their patience while we continue to addressed this issue.

    Kind regards
