The National Traction Engine Trust

Following the conclusion of the consultation undertaken by the DfT the Under Secretary of State for Transport has sanctioned the raising of speed limits for HGV’s over 7.5 tonnes travelling on 50mph single carriageway roads from 40mph to the posted speed limit.  It is intended that the proposal will come into law before April 2015.  See this link for further info https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/336311/singles-consultation-response.pdf
