Speed limit to be reduced between Nice and Antibes

A new 90kph limit on the A8 between Antibes and Nice Saint-Isidore will come into force on October 1. The announcement came from the president of Alpes-Department Charles Angel Ginésy.

A previously-planned variable speed limit, to deal with traffic during peak hours, was abandoned when highway operator Escota complained of the implementation cost and proposed an increase in tolls to pay for it.

However, it appears that the local authorities would still prefer the variable speed limit, and have asked the central government to apply pressure to Escota.
