Increased speed limit for small goods vehicles

Fri, 27 May 2011

Some goods vehicles, motorhomes and minibuses will be able to drive faster on the Island's roads from next month.

The Department of Infrastructure is increasing the speed restriction on a number of vehicle categories from June 1st.

The DoI says advances in vehicle technology means these types of vehicle are now capable of being driven at a higher speed.

Large buses, coaches or goods vehicles weighing more than seven and a half tonnes are not including in the changes.

The plans follow a public consultation by the Department on the matter.
