60mph speed limit sign, Belfast (December 2014)
In the UK the maximum speed allowed is 60 mph on single carriageways and 70mph on motorways and dual carriageways. This is called the “national speed limit” and is marked by a distinctive sign SO8642 : National speed limit applies. A 60mph sign is normally only seen where a motorway or dual carriageway has a limit below the maximum (70) – in this case between Knocknagoney/Tillysburn J3876 : Direction and lane sign, Knocknagoney/Tillysburn, Belfast and the Holywood bypass J3979 : The Holywood bypass (3). Note: certain types of vehicles are subject to limits below those quoted above.
