Variable speed limit on M1 Northbound Jct 29a Duckmanton

We're waiting for Sarah Baker to read a recent response and update the status.

Dear Highways England Company Limited,

Thank you for your initial response to my query and the speed at which you handled my request. Having received the spread sheet and information relating to my query I have called the Highways helpline number that you included in your initial email to me this morning and spoke to a lady called Jodie. The email was sent by Craig Whitemore relating to my query about variable speed limits on the M1 Northbound at Duckmanton on Thursday 23rd July between 09:30 and 11:30am

From the spreadsheet and information that you provided I am unable to see any information for the cameras at Jct 29a northbound M1 for the time that I am looking for.

I have been issued with a Notice of Intended prosecution for the time 10.54am on Thursday 23rd July however the data that you have sent me suggests that the camera / signage in that vicinity was switched off prior to that time and not put back on again until about 1 hour afterwards. I am not sure if I am reading the information correctly though and would like you to call me back, as requested via Jodie so that you can talk me through the document please.My mobile number was provide to Jodie.
Thanks again for your help and I look forward to hearing from you

Yours sincerely,

Sarah Baker

Dear Sarah

 

Thank you for your enquiry concerning speed restrictions on the M1 J29, 23
July 2020. 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 on site, date and time of 10:54 requested, a
mandatory speed limit of 50mph was set from 10:21:30 due to stranded
vehicle. The speed changed at 11:51:56 to 40mph, therefore at 10:54 the
speed was still set at 50mph. Please see attached sheet for more
information highlighted in the lighter shade. The symbols used in the
report reference the following: SIG is signal set. MSS is message
displayed at the gantry. LDR is Lane Direct Right which is an advise to
drivers to move to the right lane. Implementation reason indicates why a
signal has been set.  All relevant information was displayed on the gantry
and there were no recorded faults at the time.

Please note that enforcement of speed restrictions is the responsibility
of the police. 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. This response is for information only and cannot be
used in court for challenging an allegation of offending.
