PROPOSED CHANGES TO THE M42/M40 JUNCTION

Highways England have launched a consultation on a proposal toseek views on proposed regulations to introduce variable mandatory speed limits at the M40 / M42 Interchange, including slip roads, between M42 J3 and J4 and M40 J16 as part of the M40 / M42 Interchange Smart Motorway Scheme.

Briefly, they are suggesting converting some sections of hard shoulder into running lanes, extending the variable mandatory speed limits and upgrading the signage that goes with this.  The aim is to reduce the congestion that often occurs at this junction.
