What is the speed limit on the A616(T) Stocksbridge bypass?
Did you know that the A616(T) Stocksbridge bypass is not a dual carriageway?
The section of the A616(T) covered by our average speed cameras is national speed limit. The national speed limit on this road is 60mph for a car as it is a single carriageway (Other vehicles speed limits are shown below).
For a road to be classed as a dual carriageway, the two directions of traffic flow must be physically separated by a central reservation. (Rule 136 of the Highway Code)
Central reservation means -
(a) any land between the carriageways of a road comprising two carriageways; or
(b) any permanent work (other than a traffic island) in the carriageway of a road
Therefore, a road where the two directions of flow are separated only by lines painted on the road surface is a single carriageway, regardless of the number of traffic lanes that may be available to the traffic in each direction.
