Dangerous speed limit change

Reported via mobile in the Sign issue (NH) category anonymously at 06:57, Thu 13 October 2022

Sent to National Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 3886497.

12/10/22 at approximately 2030 hrs, M1 SB between Junc. 32-24.

Speed limit signs on O/H gantry changed from national (not illuminated), to 20mph for lanes 1&2, and 40mph for lanes 3&4. Lanes 1&2 signs then immediately showed ‘lane closed’ signs, with lanes 3&4 still showing 40mph. Reporter driving moved into lane 3 when safe to do so and reduced speed to 40mph as per gantry sign instruction. No further signs illuminated on any gantry, causing confusion for vehicles behind and near miss collision. Very dangerous selection of gantry signs/speed limits.
