Implementation of the new speed limit on the nation’s highways form 80km/h to 100km/h has been given the green light as the Minister of Works and Transport has signed the requisite Speed Limits Orders, pursuant to the Motor Vehicles and Road Traffic Act Chapter 48:50.
The Orders were published today and took immediate effect.
The publication of the Orders will now allow for the immediate regulation and enforcement of the new speed limit.
News Power Now took to the streets to hear just how people feel about the adjustment.
The speed limit will apply to these designated highways; along the Beetham Highway from the Market Overpass (east) in the vicinity of the Central Market/ NP to the Barataria Overpass, the Churchill Roosevelt Highway and the Solomon Hochoy Highway.
