Dear Highways England Company Limited,

By law, you should've responded to my enquiry by the 10th January. Please can you provide me with the detail before the end of this week?

Yours faithfully,

Tom Prescott

Dear Mr Prescott

 

Your enquiry regarding speed restrictions on the M6 between M54 exit slip
and Junction 10 (southbound) on 30 June 2021 between 22:00 – 22:02hrs has
been passed on to me for response.

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.

According to our records, the speed signal was set at the gantry in the
vicinity to 40mph from 21:45:40hrs due to congestion. Therefore at 22:00 -
22:02hrs the signal displayed was 40mph due to congestion. At 22:09:54 the
signal displayed 50mph but at 22:10:00hrs the signal displayed 40mph and
was on until 23:13:42hrs when the signal changed to 60mph due to
congestion. We are not required to provide the position of the signs
showing variable speed limits on any link, the signs and signals are
visible to drivers.

Please note that enforcement of speed restrictions is the responsibility
of the police therefore, we are unable to comment on or provide you with
advice about alleged offences because information held by the police will
always take legal precedence.

If you have any queries about this response, please contact our Customer
Contact Centre. If you are not content with this response and wish to
complain, the procedure is available via our website at:
[1]www.nationalhighways.co.uk

If you require a print copy, please phone the Information Line on 0300 123
5000; or email [2][email address]

Thank you for contacting National Highways.

 

Kind regards

Midlands Speed Enforcement.
