Dear Mr Wright

 

Thank you for your email to Highways England on 4 September 2020
concerning speed settings on the M1 southbound Junction 35 to Junction 34
specifically for the enforcement site at 4620b on 14 July 2020 at 13:04.

 

The information you have requested we make available to the public on a
regular basis.

Your request has been handled under normal business practices and not in
accordance with the Freedom of Information Act/Environmental Information
Regulations.

 

Having checked Highways England systems I can confirm the following refers
to settings for the enforcement site 4620b on the specified date and time
requested:-

 

12:20 temporary speed limit of 40mph was set by the automatic safety queue
protection system due to increased volumes of traffic in the area.

13:19 temporary speed limit of 40mph was automatically increased to 60mph
as traffic flows improved in the area.

13:44 traffic flows returned to normal with this section of the network
returning to the national speed limit.

 

To assist in understanding how the automatic safety queue protection
system works I have added a questions and answers paper on the system, it
explains why at times motorists see restrictions where motorists state
traffic flows were light.

 

For added information and only if your enquiry refers to an speeding
offence, it is the Police who operate all speed enforcement, as part of
the evidential trail the Police obtain images from the cameras which show
the vehicle travelling under the gantry along with an image of the
displayed temporary speed limit as the vehicle passes the enforcement
site.

If you wanted to check this image, it can be obtained by requesting a copy
from the relevant Police Camera Partnership which for this site is South
Yorkshire Police.

 

If you feel the information supplied is not sufficient or has not been
answered within the 15-day period, you may wish to complain. The
complaints procedure is available via our website at:
[1]https://www.gov.uk/government/organisati...

If you require a print copy, please phone the Information Line on 0300 123
5000; or e-mail [2][Highways England request email].

If you have any queries about this email, please contact us quoting
reference number 21720999.

Kind regards.
