Speed To Go Back To Normal On M1, But For How Long?

110km/h could be scrapped for good

Speed To Go Back To Normal On M1, But For How Long?

One more day of those speed restrictions on the M1, then it's back up to 110km/h between Gaven and Logan.

The speed limit goes back to normal from Tuesday, after nearly two months of motorists being forced to do 100km/h on the stretch.

However, an earlier report showed the lower limit had significantly reduced crashes on the major arterial, decreased the time it took to clear incidents away and increased traffic flow.

The government could possibly decide to bring the reduced speed in permanently, after taking a look at the final statistics when they come to hand.

A decision will be made in a few months.

Meantime, one new road rule brought in for the Commonwealth Games is here to stay.

From now on, large trucks will have to stick to the left-hand lanes.
