Truss To Drop Smart Motorways, Maybe Drop Speed Limits     

At the final Tory leadership hustings, future PM (there’s a scary thought!) Liz Truss said she will drop the ‘smart motorways experiment’ and will consider ‘look at’ the issue of motorway speed limits.

Specifically in an answer to an audience member asking about smart motorways, she said: “I absolutely think that we need to review them and stop them if they’re not working as soon as possible. All the evidence I have agrees with the point you’re making on smart motorways.

“On speed limits, I’d be prepared to look at that. I can’t give you a precise answer on that point. But I do believe that the smart motorways experiment hasn’t worked.”
