Federal territories ministry to study proposal for 30 km/h and 50 km/h speed limits in selected urban zones


According to a report by Bernama, the ministry of federal territories (KWP) is finding out the proposal by the Malaysian Institute of Road Safety Research (MIROS) on the implementation of a speed limit of 30 km/h in selected zones across the federal capital and 50 km/h in different zones.

The proposal for speed limits in selected zones is a part of a wider “Streets for Life” marketing campaign underneath the sixth United Nations Global Road Safety Week (UNGRSW), which goals to empower communities throughout Southeast Asia to implement the 30 km/h restrict in areas the place pedestrians combine with motorised site visitors.

“We will also look into its appropriateness…what is important is that the people are happy with its implementation,” Datuk Seri Shahidan Kassim mentioned in a press convention just lately. He added that the study on the proposal would take note of the pursuits of all related events earlier than something is finalised and introduced.

Meanwhile, in a tweet, MIROS board of administrators’ chairman Datuk Suret Singh confirmed the institute is working with Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) in direction of the implementation of the proposed speed limits – 30 km/h for urban and residential areas, cities, cities and villages; 50 km/h for different zones.
