Speed Reductions Coming Into Effect East of Regina

Released on October 15, 2015

Crews have begun installing 80 km/hr speed signs along Highway 1 between Regina and Balgonie.   The reduced speeds will take effect before the end of the week.

"Overpasses at White City and Balgonie will be open to traffic in just two years, and the reduced, more consistent speed limit will help to ensure motorists and construction crews are as safe as possible during the busy construction period,” Highways and Infrastructure Minister Nancy Heppner said.

The speed reductions coincide with other safety measures being rolled out east of the city in advance of the Regina Bypass project, including increased enforcement, simplified signage, and improved pavement markings at intersections along the route.

The speed limit has also been reduced to 80 km/hr on Highway 46 at Pilot Butte.  The speed reduction begins 500 metres west of the Pilot Butte Access and ends 500 metres east of Butte Street.  Highway 46 has seen growing traffic volumes in recent years as larger numbers of motorists commute to Regina from bedroom communities to the east.

“We are excited to see the reduced speeds take effect on Highway 46,” Pilot Butte Mayor Nat Ross said.  “The 80 km/hr speed limit will improve safe access to and from our growing community and the town extends its full support to this decision.”

The Government of Saskatchewan has invested a record $5.2 billion in transportation infrastructure since 2008.
