To increase the maximum permitted speed for vehicles driving up to 80 km/h on some streets of Kyiv in September. The relevant draft decision may be considered at the closest session of city Council. About it the Director of the Department of transport infrastructure Sergei Simonov.

“The question is relevant. Especially for such roads as the Great circle, Naberezhne highway, prospect Bazhana, that is, for those streets, which comes heavy-haul transport. And in order to quickly transit through Kiev, we have the support and approval of the police, to increase the maximum permitted speed of 80 km/hour,” – said Simonov.

At the same time, he noted that the relevant draft decision has comments activists in the field of road safety. They propose to increase the speed of traffic on some streets partially, that is, the right strip, where there are no bike paths or pedestrian crossings, to leave with speed limits of 50 km/h and on the left to increase up to 80 km/h.
