A361 Speed Limits

A new sign on the NDLR at Tiverton reminding drivers of their speed limits. For a substantial percentage of drivers, this is the first single carriageway road in their journey for several hunderad miles.

Speed limit changes from 40 to 40

The A338 (in the background) is exempt from the blanket 40 limit on New Forest roads. However, this section of the A338 happens to be a 40 limit anyway, so we are left with this sign, showing the end of the 40mph zone but with a 40 limit commencing.

Short speed limit signs? - Coppermine - 16479.jpg
Short speed limit signs?

I was asking about the height of speed limit signs. The one in the centre of the dual carriageway always seem very low down to me and I can't see any obvious reason why it should be so low.

Confusing speed limits at Marshwood - Coppermine - 17421.jpg
Confusing speed limits at Marshwood

The large sign refers to the side-road, while the 40 is a repeater sign on the main B3165 at Marshwood (SY375995). The problem here is that it is a rather acute junction and the two roads face more-or-less the same direction.

On the other side, of course, both say 40.

40mph limit in Aylesbury before being reduced to 30 - Coppermine - 13865.jpg
40mph limit in Aylesbury before being reduced to 30

The notice attached to the post of the right hand sign states an intention by the council to reduce all urban 40mph limits in Aylesbury to 30. The following year the speed limit reductions were carried out. This is on the A41 London Road in 2006 before the posts were simply cut off leaving just the bases sticking out the ground.

Blanket 40 limit - Mersea Island - Coppermine - 11496.jpg
Blanket 40 limit - Mersea Island

Sign at the south end of the causeway leading to Mersea Island in Essex. There is a blanket 40 mph speed limit on rural roads on the island, properly marked with repeaters, despite the fact that speeds significantly above 40 are rarely achievable anyway, and enforcement is likely to be minimal

Entering the roundabout on which the GSO terminates coming from the M77 southbound. The road markings shown are incorrect, the left lane should have a left turn arrow only and the right lane should have arrows for left, ahead and right.

A66 at Temple Sowerby

The Trans-Pennie A66 has to go though this villiage. They have wanted thier by-pass for the last 30 years. With all the Gyusm traffic from Kirkby Thore (Some is taken by rail on the S&C line) & freight with their loud trucks doing 40 mph, no wonder they want one. The work to start the by-pass will start very soon.

A slightly unusual entry from me this month. It shows a 40mph limit which is ridiculously high for the current traffic conditions. It makes a change from an unnecessarily low limit.

Ireland: N11 SB @ Glen of the Downs

Narrow hard shoulder due to reduced land take; the road goes through a nature reserve. The 40 mph limit is due to road works. Normal dual carriageway speed limit in Ireland is 60 mph (100 km/h from Sept 2004).

Bend in the Road
Most likely to have been caused by the meeting of parish boundaries at the tip of the bend. Here Partridge Green Road, Shermanbury becomes Shermanbury Road, Partridge Green at the entrance to Shermanbury Grange, though the latter is officially in West Grinstead parish. The road was already in existence during the 17th century and is the modern day B2116.
