Variable speed limits not working properly

I regularly come through this section, and often find the speed limit signs are not altering according to the conditions - for instance it is often showing 40mph limit when there are no obstructions in place, then last week 09/09/21 I came through eastbound at 745am to find the two left hand lanes to the M32 were both filled with stationary traffic going back all the way to the M5/J20, yet all the gantry signs all through the section were showing 60mph.
