The Halifax Regional Municipality is advising residents that the speed limit will be reduced to 50 km/h on two sections of the Bedford Highway. The reduced speed zones include the existing 60 km/h zones between Southgate Drive and Tremont Drive, and from Sherbrooke Drive to the Windsor Street Exchange.
Crews will be posting the new signage this week.
This change is a result of an assessment of the corridor, related to changes in conditions and activities along the roadway.
This effort supports the municipality’s Strategic Road Safety Plan, which aims to reduce fatal and injury collisions on municipal roadways. For more information about the Strategic Road Safety Plan and other road safety countermeasures, visit halifax.ca/roadsafety.
