Bulgaria Ups Hwy Speed Limit to 140 Km/H: Bulgaria Ups Hwy Speed Limit to 140 Km/H According to the newly adopted legislation, "vehicles can move with a speed of up to 140 km/h only in new sections of Bulgarian highways where the pavement allows such speed." File photo

The maximum speed limit on Bulgarian highways went up to 140 km/h at midnight Tuesday, but it is effective only for sections with the most modern pavement.

According to the newly adopted legislation, "vehicles can move with a speed of up to 140 km/h only in new sections where the pavement allows such speed."

The previous speed limit was 130 km/h. It remains 90 km/h in risky sections and highway sections built years ago.

The amendments to the Traffic Act also introduce the term "fast road," where drivers can develop speeds up to 120 km/h. These roads will not have an emergency lane, just some places to stop. They are yet to be built in Bulgaria and will cost about 30% less than regular highways.
