Public Consultation On Scottish Truck Speed Limits

Hopes for an increase in the speed limit for HGVs in Scotland have been raised after the government said it would shortly be asking the public for its opinions, writes Chris Tindall.

Scotland has had a different speed limit for HGVs from the rest of mainland UK ever since 2015 when they increased for lorries over 7.5 tonnes on single and dual carriageways, to 50mph and 60mph respectively.

However, in Scotland it remains 40mph on single carriageways and 50mph on dual carriageways.

Transport Scotland said it was currently analysing a range of policies related to speed and that as part of its review it would be launching a stakeholder and public consultation in the spring.
