From 6 April 2015, the speed limit for HGVs travelling on single and dual carriageways in England and Wales will be increased.

Following consultation and announcements made last year, the national speed limits for HGVs over 7.5 tonnes, travelling on a single carriageway will increase from 40 mph to 50 mph. The speed limit for HGVs over 7.5 tonnes, travelling on dual carriageways will increase from 50 mph to 60 mph.

The limits in Scotland are staying the same. European speed limiter requirements also remain unchanged and must be set at 56 mph or lower.

The introduction of the new speed limits will better reflect the need for a modern transport network.
