Telematics provider Masternaut has updated its software to reflect the changes in HGV speed limits.

The speed limits for HGVs travelling on single and dual carriageways in England and Wales was increased on Monday (April 6). However, limits in Scotland and Europe did not change.

The national speed limits for HGVs over 7.5 tonnes, travelling on a single carriageway increased from 40mph to 50mph, while those travelling on dual carriageways increased from 50mph to 60mph.

Steve Towe, chief commercial officer and UK managing director, said: “The introduction of new HGV speed limits will no doubt help improve our roads and create a much more modern transport network, which is in keeping with improved vehicle technology and other large vehicles on UK roads.

"Masternaut is committed to providing our customers with 100% accurate data and with these changes being implemented both on the road and in our solutions, is a record we will continue to keep.”
