M50 speed limit to be reduced
I dunno if any of you have heard about this yet but the NRA are going to reduce the speed limit from 120km to 100km on the M50 as they are calling it an "urban motorway" and the new limit would be implemented for safety reasons.
One of the lads from another forum decided to email them about this and this is the reply he got......

The speed limit on the M50 on completion will be 100kph for a number of reasons as detailed below:
It is an urban motorway.
It has four lanes.
The lanes are narrower than normal.
The junctions are frequent.
Much of the M50 is serpentine in nature, with bends that limit advance visibility.
The new M50 has a concrete median barrier that also has the affect of reducing advance visibility.
