Motorists face 60mph speed limit on motorways
Steven SwinfordThe motorway speed limit in some areas will be cut to 60mph under government plans to limit air pollution near homes and schools.
The Highways Agency on Monday announced that it is planning to reduce the limit on a 32-mile stretch of the M1, amid fears that pollution levels are damaging the health of nearby residents. The proposals are part of an attempt to meet European Union targets for clean air.
Officials will consider whether to expand the speed restriction across the country, with part of the M3 in Surrey and 13 other stretches of motorway singled out for the measure from 2015.
