HA NOI (VNS) — Vehicles will be allowed to run at a maximum speed of 90km per hour on Belt Road No 3 in Ha Noi from March 1, an official said.
Nguyen Van Huyen, general director of the Directorate for Roads of Viet Nam, said the DRVN had instructed Ha Noi's Department of Transport to raise the speed limit from 80km to 90km per hour from March.
Huyen said Circular 91/2015/TT-BGTVT, which includes regulations on speed and the distance to be maintained between vehicles, would take effect on March 1.
Accordingly, cars, 30-seater coaches, excluding public buses and vehicles with a capacity of up to 3.5 tonnes will be allowed to run at a maximum speed of 90km per hour on two-way roads with a central divider.
There was no intersection on Belt Road No 3, so the proposal to increase the speed limit from March 1 was reasonable, Huyen said.
Traffic jams occurred recently on the approach roads to Belt Road No 3 because the vehicles were being driven in the wrong lane, he said.
The DRVN has asked the municipal transport department to change the signboard systems on the road to boost traffic movement. — VNS
