Speed limit signs on M1

NEW variable speed limits have been introduced on the M1.

The controlled motorway system between junction 25 at Sandiacre and junction 28 at Pinxton will manage traffic at peak times or after accidents, said the Highways Agency.

Drivers will start to see the speed limit appear in a red circle on electronic signals on overhead gantries.

Highways Agency project manager, Andrew Robinson-Morris, said it will helping to reduce congestion when needed and make drivers’ journeys safer and more reliable by smoothing traffic flows.
