Dear Freeborn Hlahla,

 

Thank you for your enquiry to CCC recorded below which has been forwarded
to me.  Your request has been handled under normal business practices and
not in accordance with the Freedom of Information Act/Environmental
Information Regulations.

 

Having investigated this enquiry, from the data available to me I can
advise at the above location, date and time a 40mph speed limit was set at
19:59 until 21:48, at which time it was re-set to 60mph until 21:57, when
it reverted to NSL.  It appears that there may have been animals in the
road and/or an accident triggering the initial speed restriction.

 

Our records are kept for operational purposes and should be considered for
information only; they contain recommended speed limits for the motorway,
they do not represent the times at which the signs changed or that the
recommended speed limit was adopted by the motorway signals.

 

Enforcement of speed restrictions is the responsibility of the police. 
The speed enforcement system on our smart motorways generates a photo
showing the speed limit displayed on the enforcement gantry at the exact
time of the alleged offence and which should be obtainable from the
police.

 

If you have any queries about this response, please would you only contact
our Customer Contact Centre, quoting reference number 21686983.

 

Yours sincerely

 

John Craigen | SE Regional Enforcement Coordinator | ODSE Operations
