What's the speed limit? Is it 30 or 40 (because it's a fairly residential area), or is it 60mph (because of the national speed limit sign)? It's 1 lane on each side of the road. There are several small national speed limit signs on lamposts along that road.

This is the road I'm talking about.

As you can see, there are also some streetlights:

The limit is indeed 60mph as it's a single carriageway :yep:

Thanks. What denotes a single carriageway as opposed to a road through a residential area?

The national speed limit signs

TBH, not 100% sure but I'd say the grass verges on the side of the road

A residential area will have a lower speed limit than NSL...?

If there's no signs its fair to assume given lampposts and houses that it'll be a 30 road.

The speed would be NSL, reason being firstly the NSL signs everywhere. There probably on every lamppost to remind people that it is a single carriageway and not residential speed limit. Also, the grass verges on either side, infact you can see on the left that it goes verge-path-verge-brick wall. You can even see with the brick wall separates the houses from the road. Finally, it doesn't technically go "through" a residential area, it goes around one

Thats my reasoning anyway

To be fair, the sign alone is enough of an indication :')
