IF you are heading off in the car for an Easter break you may need to allow extra time because of lower speed limits on the M54.
Staffordshire County Council is urging people to stick to the 50mph limit and warning motorists that speed cameras are in operation.
Average speed cameras have been installed along the short stretch of the motorway close to junction 2 and the i54 South Staffordshire development
Staffordshire County Council’s cabinet member for economy and infrastructure Mark Winnington said:
“The 50mph limit is in place to protect the safety of people working at the i54 site, but also to protect motorists along a stretch of the motorway where the lanes have been narrowed.
"The new motorway junction is an essential factor in helping to create hundreds of jobs in the region, and we believe the short delays caused by the works are far outweighed by long-term benefits of jobs and economic growth for our area."
