Spain to revert to max speed limit of 120 km/h

Following a decision taken by the Council of Ministers on 24 June 2011, the maximum speed on the roads in Spain is to revert to 120 km/h, after being lowered to 110 km/h in March this year in a bid to save energy and reduce the cost of fuel imports.

The Ministry of Public Building and Works commenced the work of changing all the speed signs on motorways on Friday 1 July 2011. In the case of Murcia this will involve changing 300 signs on the four motorways operated by the Murcia Region government (RM1, RM2, RM3 and RM15) as well as, of course, all the affected national highways in the region. It is planned to complete the work by about Monday, but motorists are advised to exercise care whilst the work is being carried out, specially in view of the increased traffic expected with the influx of summer visitors.
