I did notice a lack of MLH's to the point only lanes one and two were in main use. Not sure what the 60mph was about but I now know it is true that MLH's are just very lazy and are not up at such times

Perhaps as mentioned above the system is learning and preparing the traffic flow

I had the opportunity to talk to someone from the Highways Agency a few years ago and he told me the following about a 60 limit on a smart motorway. If the gantries are set to 60mph it means we think something has happened but we're trying to find out exactly what and where.
