Speed limit for HGV vehicles increases from the 5th of April 2015
The 5th of April will see the speed limit for HGV’s increase. This move reflects the needs of a modern transport network and bring HGV vehicles in line with other large vehicles on the road. The dual carriageway speed limit will increase from 50mph to 60mph and the single carriage limit from 40mph to 50mph. The government hope this move will stop the slow overtaking of HGV’s on dual carriageways.
