on the a46 dualling I have been putting the reduced limits in, but here the
road is on a new alignment so its for the rest of the life of the road
(until is becomes part of ncn route 48 anyway!) .

Shame there's no way AFAIK of tagging fixme:2013-05-01=roadworks due to
finish,  resurvey alignment/maxspeed
and then have openstreet bugs ignore until that date (unless you wish to see

tag it?  My preference would be for the 50mph average speed with a note that
it ends spring 2013. My guess is that sections rolling from the South will
transform from 50 mph to maxspeed=signals, so those of you who travel this
section of the M1 should watch out for the big switch on and edit
appropriately - it will certainly make life swifter than the current

As a general point do routing and travel planner algorithms make use of
these long term construction speed restrictions?
