Cyprus mulls speed limit reduction to boost safety

The Department of Public Works proposes lowering speed limits to 30 km/h in specific urban areas to enhance safety, reduce pollution, and promote sustainable transportation.


The Department of Public Works in Cyprus has concluded a study proposing a reduction in speed limits from 50 km/h to 30 km/h in specific urban areas, aiming to curb accidents, decrease pollution, and foster eco-friendly transportation.

The recommendations, covering multiple locations in Nicosia, Limassol, and Larnaca, will be presented to Transport Minister Alexis Vafeades for further consideration by the Road Safety Council.

The move aligns with European trends promoting lower speed limits in city centers to enhance safety and reduce environmental impact. The Traffic Department of the Police supports the idea, citing a proven correlation between speed limit reductions and decreased road accidents.
