MS4 mandatory speed limit signals legality

Craig Sweeney made this Freedom of Information request to Department for Transport

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

We're waiting for Craig Sweeney to read recent responses and update the status.

Dear Department for Transport,
1. Please could you advise me of the legality of the variable mandaatory speed limit signs on MS4 type signals, in particular those installed on the M3 Smart motorway.
My understanding is that due to the text being amber and not white this does not comply with TSRGD therefore is advisory only. (signals display red ring with amber speed)
2. If these signals are compliant to TSRGD please could you detail where this can be found.
3. If signs are not compliant are their plans to make them?

Yours faithfully,

Craig Sweeney

Dear Mr Sweeney

 

Thank you for your email of 2 October 2019.

 

Following a thorough search of our records, I’m afraid that I cannot find
any trace of your request for information being received. We did
experience some difficulties in receiving emails from the whatdotheyknow
portal around the time that you made your request and I fear that this was
one that was caught up within the technical issues we experienced. I am
very sorry for the inconvenience this has caused you.

 

The subject matter of your request may fall within the remit of Highways
England to answer. I have today reverted to Highways England to seek
confirmation that they will be best placed to address the points of your
request. I will revert back to you as soon as I receive word from Highways
England.

 

Once again, I am very sorry for the inconvenience you have suffered and I
hope this helps explain the position.

 

Kind regards
