REGINA, Sask. — The speed limit on Saskatchewan’s divided highways isn’t about to change in the near future, says Highways Minister, Mark Wartman.
Last month Wartman indicated the government was considering increasing the speed limit on divided highways from 100 km/h to 110 km/h. However he has since stated that concerns over the Kyoto Accord, highway safety and low traffic volumes have arisen.
Now, Wartman says the issue is no longer a priority, although it will likely be discussed during the spring sitting of the legislature.
