All-Island speed limit lifted today

The all-Island speed limit of 60mph has been lifted today.

Speed restrictions had been in place on Manx highways since late March, aiming to reduce the amount of potential collisions on the roads to avoid putting extra strain on emergency services responding to the COVID-19 pandemic.

On March 28, the maximum speed allowed anywhere was 40mph and this was then raised to 60mph last Monday (June 15).

However, today (June 22) now sees those limits lifted as part of the latest set of measures in the Islands response to the global Coronavirus outbreak.
