Detail of outcome
This report details the Highways Agency’s response to comments raised during the eight week consultation period on the proposal for draft regulations required for the implementation of variable mandatory speed limits on the M3 between junctions 2 and 4a.
The Highways Agency proposes to improve the M3 by making it a ‘managed motorway’ between Junctions 2 and 4a.
Managed motorways help relieve congestion by using the hard shoulder as a running lane and using technology to vary the mandatory speed limit.
We have drafted regulations regarding implementation of these variable speed limits and are keen for any organisations, businesses or individuals affected by these proposals to provide their views. We are interested specifically in how the draft regulations could affect you, your organisation or those you represent.
