Netherlands Lower Speed Limit from 2020

Campers, motorhomes and caravanners visiting Holland in 2020 should be aware that the speed limit on Dutch motorways has been lowered.

An announcement by Mark Rutte, the Prime Minister of the Netherlands, confirmed the maximum speed on Dutch roads will be reduced to 100 km/h (62mph). The new limit will enter into force at 6.00am on March 16th 2020.

Previously you could drive at 120 km/h or even 130 km/h on Dutch motorways. From March, you can drive that fast only at night - cars will be allowed to drive at at 120 km/h or 130 km/h between 7pm and 6am on some roads

New signposting will be installed from March 12th to March 16th 2020.

The speed limit cut is one of a package of emergency measures the government is introducing to reduce nitrogen compound pollution following a court ruling in 2019. The Council of State said then the Netherlands is not doing enough to combat pollution and effectively halted thousands of new construction projects.

Cheers for posting that Ian. Worth pointing out that caravan speed limit on Dutch motorways presumably remains at 90km/h for outfits under 3.5t mam & 80km/h for over 3.5t mam at all times. Max limit for all outfits on other out of town roads is 80km/h unless slower is indicated.

latest news is that most of the plates will already be revealed on 13 March. rule is, if there is a 100 km sign, that speed applies.
