"Transport Secretary Patrick McLoughlin has given the Highways Agency 18 months to devise alternative methods to tackle pollution on a 32 mile stretch of the M1 in Derbyshire and South Yorkshire and 2.8 miles of the M3 in Surrey.

If none can be found a 60mph limit could still be imposed at peak times.

But Mr McLoughlin has ruled out a blanket cut in the speed limit."

There's already a permanent 50 mph speed limit on the stretch of the M3 around the M25 junction.
