PUTRAJAYA: The Cabinet today agreed to raise the speed limit on highways to 120kph from the current 110kph.

Transport Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ling said the Works Ministry had proposed the increase.

The Works Ministry had conducted a survey earlier on the proposed increase in speed limit involving respondents from the Government, non-governmental organisations and road users, and 87% of them had supported it, he said.

Dr Ling said the Cabinet agreed to the proposal after taking into consideration that the quality of Malaysian highways had improved and the highways had more lanes now.

He added the new speed limit would be implemented after it had been gazetted.
