Just in contrast with a lot of the comments here, I know of several roads with Inappropriately low limits, such as 60kph on a dual carriageway at one point, so this is a welcome move.

    Speed limits are set for many reasons I have been in roads where I thought the limit was low 4 lane road 2 in each direction and questioned why limit was low at 50 until someone pointed out to me the reason which was there was no hard shoulder and if someone stopped or broke down on this road a higher limit would then become dangerous. Made me think about it and had to agree in that case.
