LONDON, July 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
The Road Haulage Association welcomes the news that the speed limit for heavy goods vehicles travelling on single carriageway roads in England and Wales will be raised to 50 mph by April 2015.
RHA Chief Executive Geoff Dunning said: "This evidence-based decision by ministers, to increase the limit to 50 mph will be strongly welcomed by hauliers and their drivers. The current limit is long out-of-date and the frustration it generates causes unnecessary road safety risk.
"We consider this announcement to be a real win for the RHA. We have lobbied long and hard on this issue and this positive outcome is a result of members' input and support."
