This week sees changes to speed limits on certain stretches of road in Latvia, with slightly higher speed limits allowed during the summer season compared to during winter conditions.

Latvijas valsts ceļi" (LVC, Latvian State Roads) gave details of the following changes, while urging motorists to take care and comply as roadsigns are changed to reflect the revised rules.

The maximum driving speed of 110 km/h is introduced:

  • on the main state highway Riga – Sigulda – Estonian border (Veclaicene) (A2) in the section from the Tallinn highway (A1) to the end of the reconstructed section in Sēnīte (km 14.30–38.80);
  • on the main state highway Riga – Ventspils (A10) in the section from Riga to Jūrmala (km 13.45–18.78).

The maximum driving speed of 100 km/h is introduced:

  • on the Tallinn highway (A1) on the Saulkrasti bypass (21.40–26.00 km and 27.20–44.40 km) and in the section from Jelgavkrasti to Svētciems (55.50–71.30 km and 74 , 70-81.20 km);
  • on the Daugavpils highway (A6) in the section from Salaspils to Ikšķile (km 20.86–28.20);
  • on the Jelgava highway (A8) in the section from the Riga border to the traffic overpass on the Jelgava bypass (km 8.00–39.80);
  •  on the main state highway Jēkabpils – Rēzekne – Ludza – Russian border (Terehova) (A12) in separate sections (16.97–23.30 km, from 30.99–49.10 km, from 55.40–– 67.94 km and from 73.60 to 94.40 km);
  •  on the Rezekne bypass main state road (km 1.02–6.26);
  • on the state regional road Tīnūži – Koknese (P80) in the section from Kalnciems dolomite quarries to Koknese (km 5.20–60.35).

Road signs with the maximum permitted speed in these sections will be installed by May 8. It should be noted that speed signs indicate the maximum permitted speed, and the actual safe speed will vary according to the conditions, vehicle and driver.
