These are the newly approved Chandigarh speed limits

Chandigarh new speed limits have been announced by the Chandigarh Traffic Police. On Tuesday, the Chandigarh Traffic Police have made a declaration that the city’s speed limits had been revamped.

As on roads separating markets, cars can now go up to 60 kmph, up from 50 kmph formerly. On dual carriageway roads (i.e. roads with dividers), all passenger vehicles with no more than eight seats will go up to 60 kmph. Also 50 kmph on single carriageway roads (without dividers), and 40 kmph on sector roads.

Furthermore, on dual carriageway roads, passenger vehicles with nine or more seats and vehicles carrying commercial goods. They can travel up to 50 kilometers per hour. Whereas single carriageway roads and sector roads can only travel 40 kilometers per hour.

Motorcycles and three-wheeled vehicles can travel at speeds of up to 45 kilometers per hour on dual carriageway roads. And 40 kilometers per hour on a single carriageway and sector roads.

The traffic police said they would send a letter to the civic engineering wing to request that there should be a revision of the signboards.

Many motorists pointed out that the UT’s original speed warning, which has been per the implementation in 2013, was difficult to understand as the number of overspeeding challans grew exponentially. The speed limit on the roads leading to Mohali differed from the rest of the district, causing some confusion.
