Service Delivery NE, Highways England Company Limited

Dear Sam R

 

Thank you for your email below regarding speed limits on the M1 motorway

 

The information you have requested is information 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.

 

At 19:06 on 27 June 2020 the speed limit on signal 4620B was 40mph. The
previous signal 4629B was also set to 40mph. This was in response to high
wind speeds in the area and sought to slow traffic before it crossed
Tinsley Viaduct.

 

The 40mph speed limits were introduced at 19:00 and remained in place
until 19:19

 

Enforcement of speed limits in this location is the role of the police.
Part of the evidence they obtain are images which show the vehicle as it
passes the enforcement camera site.

 

You can view this image by requesting a copy from the relevant Police
Camera Partnership. Here's a link to their website

If you have any further questions regarding this or any other Highways
England issue please feel free to contact us via our 24 hour Customer
