On 1st March 2021, Highways England launched a review of the Highway Code to improve road safety on motorways and high-speed roads.

The consultation will run for four weeks and closes at 23:59 on 29 March 2021.

What’s happening?

The Highway Code is regularly updated to improve safety for all road users.

Highways England is asking for your views on updated safety information for high-speed dual carriageways and motorways.

Proposed changes include updating information on the use of variable speed limits to manage congestion, the use of red X signs to close lanes, and what to do in the event of a breakdown.

You can read full details of the proposed updates, and give your views, on GOV.UK
