New and old gantries on the M40 approaching the M42

New gantry has speed cameras covering each lane which works as part of the variable speed limit system. Also notice the revolving sections on the new signs are both blank which suggests it's not in use yet.

M42 Variable Speed Limit

Looking north about 1 mile south of J6. A 60mph limit is showing even though the traffic isn't serious enough to warrant such a limit. I get the impression the limits are set too cautiously resulting in 60mph showing too often.

Looking south from the same vantage point. A 60mph limit is showing in this direction as well. The VMS says Gritting in Progress.

Joining M25 from M40 eastbound
Leaving Warwick just before 11 we joined the M25 just after midday, on our way to family lunch in Sussex: Christmas Day on the road, along with many others. Brilliant sunshine and a very hard frost in Warwickshire, some fog on the way south, cloud by the time we reached the Chilterns.

D A2 140kmh limit - 21JUL06

A pretty unusual limit here as one re-enters the former West Germany on the A2 from Berlin to Hanover near Brunswick (once the main corridor from West Germany to West Berlin).

The temporary limit read 140kmh for quite a way.

The sensors on the gantry measure traffic speeds and display the limit. Unlike the M25 there are no speed cameras attached to them. When there is no limit, they show the de-restricted sign.
