VMS signs are set incorrect

Sent to National Highways less than a minute later

The end of roadworks area is signified by a 70mph fixed speed limit sign and this is also displayed on the VMS just past J13. However for a week or so now, the VMS gantries past this (around 3 sets) have displayed 60mph which is the 'test speed' for the new smart motorway section. The first gantry after the NSL has a speed camera too which doesn't help. The signs need correcting to end at J13 and not continue after one NSL sign,

  • Why are there still cones, roadwork signs, reduced speed limit and average speed monitoring between keele services and J13? There has not been any work done there in MONTHS I drive this stretch of M6 at various times daily and have not seen any work being done. Especially south bound which has no cones or signs but a permanent smart motorway 60mph. It makes no sense and is inconvenient. Your signs say delays until March 2022, we’ll it’s March 2022, when can we finally have normality on the m6 again?

  • VMS signs set incorrectly yet again past J13, 60mph to 40mph despite the NSL signage to signify the 'end of roadworks'. The speed camera was making a fortune this morning despite there being a clear road and it being 5.30am.

  • The speed signs are STILL showing 60 mph in both directions between Junction 13 and Junction 15. There are also some yellow signs saying (I think I have the right wording) "Stay with vehicle, await rescue" - as are common where there are roadworks - but NO other signs of roadworks. As remarked in earlier posts, the roadworks on this stretch actually finished MONTHS ago. Has someone justy forgotten a step in the finishing off?
