60 mph restriction

Reported via mobile in the Sign issue (NH) category anonymously at 10:45, Tue 5 July 2022

Why has there been a 60 mph restriction. For over 10 miles on a 4 lane motorway when there appears to have been no problem?

  • W we are currently driving on an almost empty M6 southbound with 4 open and empty lanes with 10 miles of 60 mph restrictions on Please tell me how you can justify that

  • We're currently turning the M6 between junction 13 to 15 into a Smart Motorway. The lane restrictions and speed limit are in place to facilitate this work.

    The M6 between junctions 13 and 15 is one of the busiest sections of road in the UK. It is used by over 127,000 vehicles per day and suffers from heavy congestion and unpredictable journey times, especially during peak periods. Congestion on this stretch of motorway also impacts on local roads. The scheme will reduce congestion, remove major bottlenecks and improve journey time reliability which will help businesses in the area to be more efficient.

    Kind regards
