Detail of outcome
We received a total of 17 responses during the course of the consultation, although a number of comments are beyond the scope of the consultation and have been answered.
Following the consultation it is recommended that the Secretary of State proceed with making the regulations necessary to allow for the implementation of variable mandatory speed limits on the M6 between junctions 16 and 19.
Proposals to improve the M6 by making it a smart motorway between junctions 16 and 19. Smart motorways relieve congestion by using the hard shoulder as a running lane and using technology to vary the speed limit at busy times.
Highways England has drafted regulations regarding implementation of these variable speed limits and is keen to hear how these proposals could affect you, your organisation or those you represent.
