The works ministry has announced that speed limits on federal and state roads will be reduced in conjunction with national road safety campaign during the Hari Raya festivities.

Beginning this Friday (June 8), the speed limit at federal roads will be lowered from 90 km/h to 80 km/h while at state roads, it will be reduced from 80 km/h to 70 km/h. These revisions will remain in place until June 22 and will be monitored via the ministry’s Op Bersepadu.

“We will issue a directive to the Public Works Department’s (JKR) road maintenance facility division to change the speed limit signboard along these two type of roads. This is to avoid confusion among road users who will use federal roads and state roads during the festive seasons,” the ministry said in an official statement.
