At 1800 hours Mon 3 May 2021 this sign (4598A) was displaying national speed limit. The signs upstream indicated a mandatory 40mph speed limit due to high winds on the bridge. So on the long downhill approach to J34 the northbound carriageway was subject to 40mph but this last sign before Tinsley Viaduct showed national speed limit across the bridge. Coming off the bridge there was another 40mph speed limit (gantry 4613A) past the merge from J34 before NSL limit displayed on gantry 4620A). So a 40mph limit had been imposed both south and north of the bridge but the speed limit was 70mph on the bridge.
