Speed camera and matrix signs not aligned

Reported via desktop in the Sign issue (NH) category anonymously at 18:40, Mon 27 February 2023

Sent to National Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4268521.

At approx 17:55hrs the south bound Matrix signs adjusted to allow cars to travel south between J19 and J18, The first sign adjusted from 50mph to national speed limit, however passing the sign shortly after it changed resulted in the speed cameras still triggering. I assume they were still looking for vehicles travelling above 50mph, which we now were.
