Government considers changing speed limit to 100 kph on highways

The Government is considering changing the speed limit to 100 kilometres per hour on highways in particular and it could possibly be agreed upon within a week.

This will apply to the Churchill Roosevelt, Uriah Butler and Beetham highways.

The speed limit along the Diego Martin Highway will also be adjusted upward based on experts' advice.

Minister of Works and Transport, Fitzgerald Hinds told today's post-Cabinet news conference that in light of public discussion on the matter, he has asked experts within his Ministry to give feedback on the issue.
