Faulty variable speed gantry between junction 12 and 11, M62 westbound

Reported via mobile in the Structures (eg bridges, fencing, noise barriers) (NH) category anonymously at 23:17, Wednesday 11 May 2022

Sent to National Highways less than a minute later

On Wednesday 11th of May at approximately 10pm, I was traveling Westbound between junctions 12 and 11. I was using my cruise control set to 50mph, as there was a message on the roadside gantry stating that there was a stranded vehicle, and to avoid the inside lane, and travel at 50mph. As I approached an overhead gantry, this warning cleared, and the national speed limit sign was displayed. I set my cruise control to 65mph, and traveled under the gantry at approximately 62-63mph. At this point the overhead gantry flashed. As I was the only car going through the gantry at that point, I am worried that the gantry is faulty, and I and others traveling through this stretch may receive erroneous fines as a result. My vehicle reg is ND71 YWF.
