speedenforcementSE, Highways England Company Limited

Dear Stuart

 

Thank you for your enquiry to CCC recorded below which has been forwarded
to me. Your request has been handled under normal business practices and
not in accordance with the Freedom of Information Act/Environmental
Information Regulations.

Having investigated this enquiry, from the data available to me I can
advise on the requested date and time a mandatory speed limit of 60mph was
set automatically between 11:33-12:52 due to congestion detected on the
carriagway.

Please note that Highways England is not an Enforcement Authority. Our
records are kept for operational purposes, not speed enforcement and
should be considered for information only, in response to your enquiry, as
the speed limit applicable to any speeding offences can only be confirmed
from the information held by the Police.

 

The signals are set to reduce the speed of traffic, smooth the flow,
reduce the potential for flow breakdown and create a safer environment for
the current traffic conditions.

Drivers may not realise why these signals are set as there may be no
apparent reason for the settings where the driver is located; it would
normally be well ahead of that location.

 

Please note that Highways England is not an Enforcement Authority. Our
records are kept for operational purposes, not speed enforcement and
should be considered for information only, in response to your enquiry, as
the speed limit applicable to any speeding offences can only be confirmed
from the information held by Police.
Please be aware that the recently upgraded speed enforcement system on our
smart motorways generates a photo showing the speed limit displayed on the
enforcement gantry at the exact time of the alleged offence and which
should be obtainable from Essex Police.

If you have any queries about this response, please contact our Customer
Contact Centre, quoting reference number #18908221.
