. speed limits through motorway roadworks in england could be raised from 50 to 60 miles per hour. the proposed changes follow trials which found drivers would feel safer at higher speeds. jon donnison reports. roadworks and mile after mile of little orange cones are the bane of many driver's lives. the current speed limit when passing through motorway roadworks is 50 mph, but highways england says that could be increased to up to 60. it follows trials where drivers were fitted with heartrate monitors to measure stress levels, driving through roadworks at different speeds. 60% of participants recorded a decrease in average heart rates in the 60 mph trial zone. in the 55 mph zone, the decrease was 56%. some drivers said they were more relaxed at higher speeds because it allowed them to accelerate away from large lorries. what you find at 50 miles an hour is many trucks have their speed limited to 56, and therefore they try and drive faster, they tailgate cars, a foot off their bumper. that becomes incredibly dangerous. so on those stretches, if you can have 55 or 60 miles an hour, you w
