Dear Highways England Company Limited,
I have been sent an NIP for doing 60mph when the variable speed limit was said to be set at 50mph. This was at 16.40 on 7.4.21 between junctions 26 and 27 of the M62 Eastbound.
Please can you advise me of what time the 50mph was put into place around that time please and what time it was put back to regular national speed limit.
