Ford Transit - National spped limit vs regulatory speed limit  
Ford Transit - National spped limit vs regulatory speed limit - Class_one

There is a single carriageway road near me which has national speed restriction signage at the start of it. However, a few miles down the road it changes to a regulatory red-ringed 60 sign. Does this mean that once I've passed the 60 sign I can drive at 60 in my transit van where I'd normally be restricted to 50 where the 'nationals' applied??

No. But what weight was the Van.

Van/lorry Under 7.5T Over 7.5T
Built up area (Lit) 30 30 30
Single carriageway 60 50 40
Dual carriageway 70 60 50
Motorway 70 70 60

A single carraigeway NSL is 60

Peter, it's a standard transit van which has a MGW of around 3.5T which means the NSL on a single carriageway is 50 as with all vans over 2T. Only car-derived vans under 2T can do 60 in the NSL like cars.
