Madrid Speed Limits Lowered As Pollution Levels Rise Again

Limit re-set at 70 km/h on the M-30 and other main roads in Madrid

The Town Hall of Madrid announced on Wednesday evening that the level of air pollution has risen once more to higher than the established threshold, and that in consequence the maximum speed limit on the M-30 motorway and the main roads leading into the city centre was to be reduced from 90 to 70 km/h on Thursday.

The permitted amount of nitrogen dioxide was exceeded at the weather stations of Fernández Ladreda and Villaverde on Wednesday and the weather forecast is not favourable, according to the Town Hall press release, and while the speed restrictions are in place members of the public are requested to use public transport rather than private vehicles whenever possible. The restrictions will remain in place for as long as the level of nitrogen dioxide remains above 180 micrograms per cubic meter of air, and information regarding the situation on Friday is to be published Thursday morning.
