MALLORCA TODAY - Costs of the new motorway speed limit
The Spanish Government decision to cut the motorway speed limit to 110kph from 7 March should save 1,400 million euros per annum. Set against this, the cost of changing signs, at 250,000 euros, is very little. There is, though, the issue of adjusting speed cameras, most of which are not, as yet, fully operational in Mallorca. Though meant to be a temporary measure, the saving which is claimed makes one wonder if this might become permanent. The new signs will, though, be temporary; just stuck on over existing ones.
