Government to decide on raising speed limit to 160 in places

24-05-2009

The Ministry of Transportation is to review the current maximum speed limit of 130 kilometres per hour on Monday. An amendment to the law would allow a maximum speed of 160 km/h on sections of motorways where there are no slip roads and where drivers have at least 200m visibility. Speed limits could also be raised to 100 km/h on other roads as well.
